In the second part of our special miniseries, “America's Longest War: What Went Wrong in Afghanistan,” you'll hear more conversations Jake Tapper had with U.S. commanding generals who led the war effort, from the former Afghan Ambassador to the U.S., and from the veterans who served. We look at whether U.S. troop levels could have ever changed the trajectory of the war eight years after it began and examine the bigger question of whether the past 20 years of war was worth the immeasurable cost.

In “America's Longest War: What Went Wrong in Afghanistan,” you'll hear conversations Jake Tapper had with eight former U.S. commanding generals who led the war effort over two decades and four administrations. We examine the mission and the missteps, how political decisions hurt the ability of service members to succeed, whether the Pentagon misrepresented the Afghan military's abilities to the public, and how after 20 years of sacrifice, the U.S. withdrawal resulted in the return to power by the Taliban in August 2021.

The last of the C-17 planes carrying American military members were evacuated from Afghanistan on Monday, meeting President Biden's August 31st deadline and ending the nation's longest war. The deadline was not met without consequences, as the Biden administration deals with the aftermath of a dangerous, disjointed evacuation plan that left behind both Americans and allies and a terror attack that killed 13 American service members and over 100 Afghans. Fox News Correspondent at the Pentagon Lucas Tomlinson joins to explain how the president's decision to stick with the August 31st deadline despite not evacuating everyone in time. Lucas breaks down why the Pentagon was not surprised by the terror attack on the Kabul airport, the billions of dollars of operational equipment left behind in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and the issues the U.S. will soon face now that the withdrawal from the region is complete.   Coronavirus vaccinations are picking up steam again in the U.S. as many Americans get it to protect themselves from the contagious Delta variant. Most of the new infections are among the unvaccinated, bringing many hospitals to their breaking point in a number of states. Meanwhile, families across the country are preparing to send their children back to school for in-person learning, which is bringing up the ongoing debate over mask mandates in schools. Senior Director, of New York City's System-wide Special Pathogens Program, Dr. Syra Madad joins to discuss where we are with the pandemic, the debate about mask mandates, if it's too soon to start pushing for booster shots and if we will ever learn how to live with the coronavirus.   Plus, commentary by FOX News contributor Liz Peek.
