US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are in Qatar Monday for talks about the situation in Afghanistan and to express gratitude for the Gulf state’s help in evacuating some 55,000 people people fleeing the Taliban takeover. The visits highlight Qatar’s central position as a global power broker, but also raise questions over the tiny Arab nation’s oversized diplomatic role in a region fraught with geostrategic tensions.
