In Leaving Afghanistan, FRONTLINE examines the consequences of America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. From acclaimed Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi, who has covered the war between the Taliban and the American-led coalition since its inception, this investigative report reveals what America is leaving behind: a country that may be on the verge of a deadly sectarian civil war, with the Sunni Taliban on the rise and majority-Shia Iran seeking to expand its power. With exclusive access to a militant wing of the Taliban, Quraishi tells the story of Iran’s growing influence across Afghanistan.

On July 22, join FRONTLINE’s executive producer, Raney Aronson-Rath, for a conversation with Leaving Afghanistan‘s Peabody Award-winning correspondent Najibullah Quraishi and producer Jamie Doran. The conversation will explore the consequences of U.S. troops leaving Afghanistan after 20 years of war, the rising fears of civil war in the increasingly unstable country and Iran’s growing influence
