FPI Executive Director Jamie Fly comments on US-Taliban Peace Talks
"This appears to be an act of desperation on the part of the Obama administration," says Jamie Fly, executive director of the Foreign Policy Initiative. "All signs are that the president is not willing to commit the resources to win on the battlefield."
"Some in the administration appear to be hoping to talk their way out despite all the evidence that the Taliban are not serious about a negotiated settlement that does not undermine Afghanistan's stability," he says.
The Foreign Policy Initiative seeks to promote an active U.S. foreign policy committed to robust support for democratic allies, human rights, a strong American military equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century, and strengthening America’s global economic competitiveness.
