Peter Galbraith Afghanistan Elections Podcast


My colleague Sarwar Kashmeri, a nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s International Security Program, has inaugurated the New Atlanticist Podcast series with an interview with Ambassador Peter Galbraith on the Afghanistan election crisis. Galbraith believes Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been permanently tainted by the fraud in the initial contest and argues that the issue of Karzai’s legitimacy must have an impact on U.S. and allied decision-making going forward in Afghanistan.
