The NATO Summit and AfghanistanDownload audio (MP3)
NATO and Afghan leaders meeting in Chicago formally approved a plan to draw down international forces in Afghanistan. Under the plan, the Afghan military will take the lead role by next summer, though the U.S. will maintain a presence past 2014. We discuss the challenges ahead in Afghanistan, and the evolving role of NATO in world affairs.
