Afghanistan Today International Panel

City Opera House, TC

What did we win? What did we lose? What did it cost? In a new, updated edition of Doug Stanton’s bestselling book "Horse Soldiers," published for the 20th anniversary of 9/11, he talks with the three panelists NWS is bringing to the City Opera House stage: Jack Segal, retired US diplomat; Rahela Sidiqi, founder of an NGO for Afghan women’s rights; & Shannon Spann, former intelligence officer. Together, they will attempt to answer those pivotal questions, shining a light on history, global & local, as it unfolds before us. Join the conversation early from 5:30-6:15pm for a “then to now” prelude lecture from Jack Segal, who made 40 visits to Afghanistan between 2002 & 2010 during his time with NATO. The panel discussion begins at 6:30pm.
