How Afghanistan fell to the Taliban so quickly? Jeremy Jones, director of International affairs at AIJAC....The situation in Afghanistan is uncertain and evolving since the Taliban took back control for the first time after 20 years immediately after the Americans left.I spoke to Jeremy Jones, Director of International affairs at AIJAC about this development. I asked him how did Afghanistan fall to the Taliban so quickly?
