- Well Structured
In this fresh look at Afghanistan, former US Marine Corps General John Allen and five experts from the Brookings Institution analyze the situation there. In a June 2017 roundtable discussion, the experts hew to the conventional wisdom: that the US invasion of Afghanistan was justified and that US involvement has borne fruit. They also acknowledge that US president Donald Trump has ushered in a new era of foreign policy and that any further investment of American lives is a tough sell.
