Obama's Missed Opportunity in Afghanistan

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

President Obama’s apparent decision that he is not going to call for a major troop reduction or more modest goals in Afghanistan means that he has lost a chance, perhaps his last, to steer American foreign policy in a substantially different direction and, implicitly, to raise some major questions about the U.S. role in the world that are rarely examined in Washington.
