Due to the Biden administration’s failed policies, the Taliban controls more of Afghanistan today than it did on September 11, 2001. Meanwhile, transnational terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic State Khorasan (IS-K) have increased their scale and activity in the country.

Since the Taliban’s return to power, one credible and non-extremist group has been willing to take up arms in opposition: the National Resistance Front (NRF) of Afghanistan. Based in the Panjshir province and operating in a dozen other provinces, the NRF has continued to fight the Taliban against all odds and without any international support. Hudson Institute will hold an event to discuss the situation in Afghanistan and America’s best options to support the NRF.
