Intelligence analyst and military veteran Michael Pregent joins JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin to discuss the debacle in Afghanistan and the implications of the triumph of the Taliban for American security and for its allies.

The two talk about the incompetence and misguided hopes that led to the Biden administration’s decision as well as how these events will impact international terrorism, the threat from Iran and trust in the United States by both friends and foes. They also touch on what lessons Israel needs to learn from recent events.
