Roundtable,
Philip D. Zelikow

The executive director of the 9/11 Commission argues that American defenses against terrorism have been improved, but he says politics and bureaucracy have foiled several vital reforms.

Roundtable,
Randy George and Dante Paradiso; James Dobbins

The U.S. mission in Afghanistan suffers from a lack of common objectives among U.S. agencies, argue Randy George and Dante Paradiso. What the war needs is a single commander to unite civilian and military efforts, they write. Not so, replies James Dobbins: Washington should be loath to move away from its tradition of civilian control of the armed forces.

Roundtable,
