by | Sep 20, 2017 | Interviews | 1 comment

Scott interviews May Jeong on her featured article “The U.S.-Trained Warlords Committing Atrocities in Afghanistan” for In These Times. Jeong discusses her time reporting in Afghanistan, why the Afghanistan War is really the American War, and details how the same dynamics at work in Iraq exist in Afghanistan. Jeong explains what she thinks might happen when the United States leaves Afghanistan, but why she believes that the Taliban doesn’t have the manpower to rule the entire country.

May Jeong is a visiting scholar at the NYU school of Journalism and a Logan Fellow at the Carey Institute. Follow her on Twitter @mayjeong.
