The Taliban now control more territory than they have at any point since they were overthrown in 2001.
Amidst so many other global conflicts dominating new cycles, the war in Afghanistan barely gets mentioned today, even as both civilian and security deaths there continue to rise. But in a new special, VICE correspondent Ben Anderson returns to the conflict he's covered for more than ten years, reuniting with several Afghans — an Army Major, a policeman who dismantles IEDs, and a family forced to fight to defend their home — for a shocking report that questions what the "War on Terror" has actually accomplished.
Join New America NYC at Lincoln Center for a premiere screening of VICE on HBO's "Taliban Resurgence" and for a conversations with Ben Anderson and Douglas Ollivant on America's longest running war — and if there's an end in sight.
