Andrew Bacevich On America's Long-Standing Wars
Eighteen years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States is still at war in Afghanistan. That day's enduring impact on American foreign policy was most recently highlighted by President Trump’s reported efforts to bring Taliban leaders to Camp David for negotiations — a plan he later scrapped. Retired Army Colonel Andrew Bacevich has spent much of the past 15 years arguing against the war in Iraq, which followed the war in Afghanistan as part of former President Bush’s declared “War On Terror.” Bacevich joined Jim Braude on Greater Boston. Bacevich is now president of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and author of the forthcoming book, "The Age of Illusions: How America Squandered Its Cold War Victory."

Bahamians Escaping Hurricane Dorian Denied TPS Status, While Other TPS Holders Face Uncertainty
Typically, when civil wars or natural disasters like hurricanes level large portions of other nations, the U.S. government lends a hand with a type of humanitarian aid known as Temporary Protective Status, or TPS. It's a designation that lets foreign nationals temporarily live in the U.S. if it's too dangerous for them to return to their own. But days after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas, the Trump administration said Bahamians will not be given TPS status. And they're not the only ones — the White House is also looking to cut off TPS status for people from six other countries. As Liz Neisloss reports, they are also dealing with a lot of uncertainty.
