Big Story Podcast: Abandoned – Afghanistan after the U.S. Occupation

Big Story Podcast

In 2001, when the U.S. led an invasion of Afghanistan to oust the Taliban, the country had less than 50 miles of paved roads. The U.S. helped invest billions to create a new Ring Road connecting major Afghan cities.

On this Big Story podcast, we take a drive along Ring Road today. With the U.S. forces gone, the battered roadway now illustrates the struggles and heartbreak of a war-weary nation.
