Professor Daniel Markey on Exiting Afghanistan

Daniel Markey is the author of “China’s Western Horizon: Beijing and the New Geopolitics of Eurasia,” and academic director of the Global Policy Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C. From 2007-2015, he was senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations. He lends us his expertise on Afghanistan as he and Mark discuss the war that has spanned Professor Markey’s entire professional career. Professor Markey explains that the transition could have definitely been smoother, and mistakes have been made, but he also understands the situation the Biden administration found themselves in and why they had to act on the promise of pulling out of Afghanistan once and for all.
