Mark N. Katz on "Leaving without Losing: The War on Terror after Iraq and Afghanistan"
As the United States withdraws its combat troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, politicians, foreign policy specialists and the public worry about the consequences of leaving. Neither nation can be considered stable and progress toward democracy, a principal aim of America and the West, is fragile at best. International relations scholar Mark N. Katz asks: Could ending both wars actually help the United States and its allies overcome radical Islam in the long term?
Katz is professor of government and politics at George Mason University. He is the author of several books, including "Leaving without Losing: The War on Terror after Iraq and Afghanistan" (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2012).
