In 2019, through FOIA requests and lawsuits, the Washington Post obtained hundreds of interviews conducted by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) for its Lessons Learned Program. The interviews showed that behind the scenes, U.S. military and government officials in Afghanistan presented a far gloomier picture of the war and reconstruction efforts than was presented to the American public by officials in Washington. Washington Post investigative reporter Craig Whitlock, author of “The Afghanistan Papers,” joins us to talk about the Post’s efforts to obtain the SIGAR interviews, the war in Afghanistan, his reporting on the U.S. Navy’s “Fat Leonard” scandal, and more. close
