Aspen Security Forum 2018

Dozier moderated 2018 Aspen Security Forum panel “Victory” in Afghanistan and Iraq, with speakers: Adam Schiff, Ranking Member, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Thomas Shannon, Former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Samantha Vinograd, Former Senior Advisor to the National Security Advisor Juan Zarate, Former Deputy National Security Advisor for Combatting Terrorism

Strategy guiding the US-led military mission in Afghanistan – now in its seventeenth year – remains essentially the same, and a political resolution remains out of sight. In Iraq, Muqtada al-Sadr, a man responsible for hundreds of American deaths early in the war, has returned to center stage as a self- professed political reformer and fervent nationalist. In short, “victory” in both Afghanistan and Iraq remains as hard to define and illusive as ever. What would “winning” these wars look like now?
