In the second episode of the Warpod’s special series ‘Reckoning with 9/11’, hosts Larry Attree and Delina Goxho are joined by Steve Coll, Dean of Columbia Journalism School and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and Huma Saeed, an affiliated researcher at the Leuven Institute of Criminology. They discuss the first country to be targeted in the war on terror, Afghanistan. We ask, why did this war become so challenging? And what were the consequences for the people who lived through it?
