Today, we want to share a special miniseries CNN put together during the final months of America’s withdrawal. In “America's Longest War: What Went Wrong in Afghanistan,” you’ll hear conversations Jake Tapper had with eight former U.S. commanding generals who led the war effort over two decades and four administrations. We examine the mission and the missteps, how political decisions hurt the ability of service members to succeed, whether the Pentagon misrepresented the Afghan military's abilities to the public, and how after 20 years of sacrifice, the U.S. withdrawal resulted in the return to power by the Taliban in August 2021. In the first part of our documentary, we take you back to the very beginning.
