by Trapani, Ryan Thomas, M.A., The George Washington University, 2015, 69; 1603039
Abstract (Summary)

America’s longest war will end in defeat, but it is still possible to achieve a tolerable outcome to the war in Afghanistan. The United States must decide the best alternative for ending the war and it must decide now. The U.S. has limited time to make meaningful progress on the negotiation front before completing its withdrawal from Afghanistan. This study analyzes whether or not the U.S. should negotiate with the Taliban to end the war in Afghanistan and the defense policy implications this decision has on U.S. national security.
