Layne Oped on Afghanistan Published in Chicago Tribune; Praised in Foreign Policy Magazine Blog

September 16, 2010

Professor Christopher Layne’s oped article, “Petraeus’ Dubious Strategy in Afghanistan” was published in the Chicago Tribune on 23 August 2010.  Layne expresses doubts about U.S. chances of winning in Afghanistan and criticizes Washington’s counter-insurgency doctrine as based on erroneous lessons drawn from the war in Iraq.  In his regular blog for Foreign Policy magazine, Stephen Walt, the Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, praised Layne’s article as a “smart piece” and agreed with its analysis.
