    How effective has U.S. assistance been in Afghanistan? USAID Afghanistan/Pakistan director Alex Thier and Abigail Friedman of The Asia Foundation discussed what civilian assistance has and has not accomplished in Afghanistan and what that implies for civilian efforts there in the future. The conversation was centered around a new report, "USAID in Afghanistan: Partnership, Progress, and Perseverance." Moderated by CSIS's Robert D. Lamb, this timely discussion provided context for the upcoming NATO summit in Chicago in May and the Tokyo conference in June.
