    Amanpour: Adm. William McRaven (Ret.), Elizabeth Becker and Michio Kaku

    Three U.S. presidents have tried and failed to end the war in Afghanistan, and President Biden says he refuses to be the fourth. By September, he will withdraw thousands of U.S. troops from the country and NATO is likely to follow. Former head of U.S. Special Operations Command Admiral William McRaven (Ret.) was the commander of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden, he joins Christiane Amanpour to explain how there probably will still be a small U.S. presence in Afghanistan even after President Biden pulls out troops. The contributions of journalists Kate Webb, Catherine Leroy and Frances Fitzgerald have long been overlooked, but now Elizabeth Becker – herself a former war correspondent – is telling their story in her new book, “You Don’t Belong Here: How Three Women Rewrote the Story of War.” She explains the story of these three women correspondents who changed war coverage forever. The discovery that a subatomic particle is behaving in a way nobody could have predicted has physicists excited.
