Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington DC are joined by the BBC’s World Affairs Editor, John Simpson to discuss the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the fall of Kabul to the Taliban.
They talk about the country’s history of rapid takeovers, the failings of the US and allies and what life is like in Afghanistan under Taliban rule.
Then in You Ask Us, they answer a listener’s question on whether President Obama’s surge could have made a difference to the future of Afghanistan.
