♦ “Hopeless but Optimistic: America and Afghanistan” Award-winning journalist and author Douglas Wissing speaks about America’s failed war in Afghanistan, and his optimism for a post-conflict Afghan-appropriate future.
♦ “The Juice Ain’t Worth the Squeeze: The Failure of America’s Corporatized Warfare” Douglas Wissing speaks about dysfunctional 21st-century privatized counterinsurgency strategies, and why America’s largess failed to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan and Iraq, and are destined to fail in other intractable battlefields in the Middle East and Africa.
♦ “Ernie Pyle would have a Heyday: American soldiers in the Post-9/11 Wars” Drawing on his experience embedding with US soldiers in the war zones of Afghanistan, Douglas Wissing depicts the pathos and often dark comedy of the battlefield, as well as the courage and honor that binds warriors together.
