Seven years after the 9/11 attacks, the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan remains the front line in the war on terror. Pakistan is suffering from its greatest internal crises in decades, while Afghanistan remains far from stable with a resurgent Taliban.

On Wednesday, December 17, Brookings Fellow Vanda Felbab-Brown answered questions in a live web chat with Politico about foreign policy challenges President-elect Barack Obama faces in this volatile region.

Every Wednesday between the election and the inauguration, Brookings experts and editors from Politico will host “The Scouting Report,” a live web chat discussing pressing issues facing our president-elect.
