The United States’ final withdrawal from Afghanistan in August of 2021 marked the end of a twenty-year war that reshaped the country and region. The United States entered Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, degrading al-Qaeda and eventually killing Osama bin Laden, while temporarily removing the Taliban regime. Tens of thousands of lives – from everyday Afghans to American soldiers – were transformed, and lost, along the way.

One year later, Afghanistan faces a grim and uncertain future. What have been the war’s consequences and what has US withdrawal meant for Afghanistan and the United States?

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security virtually tomorrow, Tuesday, August 23, at 11:00 a.m. ET as we reflect on the war’s repercussions, assess the future, and hear perspectives from those who’ve lived and learned Afghanistan’s story first-hand, including themes from author and veteran Elliot Ackerman’s new book, The Fifth Act: America’s End in Afghanistan.
