ABSTRACT
The article looks at political and security conditions in Afghanistan in advanced of the scheduled 2014 withdrawal of U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) troops from the country and makes recommendations about U.S. policy for the transition. The authors argue that the transition strategy of U.S. President Barack Obama is overly focused on the Afghan military and that the U.S. should do more to reform the Afghan government under President Hamid Karzai so it has greater legitimacy, strengthen the country's judiciary, and achieve a political settlement among different political and ethnic factions including the Taliban. The role of Pakistan is also discussed.
