Steve Inskeep Is Back From Afghanistan

It’s been a year since the U.S. left Afghanistan in disarray. We’ve spoken to a number of people who have been to Afghanistan over the years on this show. That includes journalists who walked into Kabul with the Taliban the first time, in 1996, soldiers who fought in Afghanistan throughout the war, and more recently, a man who was supposed to be fighting corruption but found it to be worse than a losing battle.

Today, NPR’s Steve Inskeep joins us. He recently visited Afghanistan and spent some time with the Taliban.
