One year after the U.S. assassination of Osama bin Laden, I'm concerned that our government is still pursuing the same failed war strategy in Afghanistan based on bringing "peace" through fighting and war. As the U.S. and Afghanistan negotiate the terms of their relationship for the next decade, I would urge Congress and the president to abandon the failed war strategy in Afghanistan and focus U.S. policy instead toward supporting political negotiations that include all parties to the conflict such as Afghan civil society and Afghanistan's neighbors, Iran and Pakistan.
