Afghanistan

As America draws down troops from Afghanistan, cuts back on military spending and the size of its military, many worry that America’s leadership in the world and ability to protect its allies is eroding. On this edition of America Abroad we travel to Estonia, Japan, and Saudi Arabia to speak with US allies as well as officials and experts in Washington to understand how America’s defense cuts are perceived around the world.

Since the September 2001 terrorist attacks and the overthrow of the Taliban regime, the international community has made historic new commitments to the stability and future of Afghanistan. But enormous challenges remain in rebuilding this war-torn country, and the depth of commitment from outside powers is unclear.
