The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan 2001-2014

A conversation with Carlotta Gall, Former Afghanistan and Pakistan correspondent, New York Times

Date & Time

Apr. 11, 2014
10:00am – 11:00am ET


6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
Get Directions


Carlotta Gall has spent years reporting from Afghanistan and Pakistan, beginning shortly after the 9/11 attacks. Her new book, The Wrong Enemy, argues that much of the damage from the war in Afghanistan can be traced to Pakistan’s government and intelligence forces. Now that American troops are withdrawing, she argues, it is time to tell the full history of how we have been fighting the wrong enemy, in the wrong country.

This event featured brief comments from Gall about her book, followed by audience Q/A.
