The Disaster in Afghanistan: How We Got Here with Christopher Paul Meyer

Over the past week, the world has seen and heard about horrible things coming out of Afghanistan. Decisions that were made in the White House over the past few administrations are now being scrutinized in light of these events, and as a podcast on presidents we wanted to provide some of that perspective given the news. To help to sift through all of this is Christopher Paul Meyer, a former Army intelligence soldier, recipient of a Bronze Star in Afghanistan, Artistic Director of Veterans Repertory Theater, and President of the Griesa Center for Veterans in the Arts.
