Overview

President Obama publicly unveiled his administration's policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan in March 2009. In this Policy Options Paper, CFR Senior Fellow Daniel Markey analyzes the Obama administrationís strategy and lays out two realistic alternatives.

Finally, he proposes a number of detailed recommendations to implement this strategy.
