Roundtables

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,

Michael Bröning, Tony Badran, and Mara E. Karlin and Andrew J. Tabler on the increasingly brutal crackdown in Syria, the durability of the Assad regime and what, if anything, the United States can do to bring the crisis to a peaceful end.
