Former State Department advisor for Afghanistan and Pakistan and best-selling author Nasr delivers a sharp indictment of America's flawed foreign policy and outlines a new relationship with the Muslim world. Drawing on his in-depth knowledge of the Middle East and firsthand experience in diplomacy, Nasr offers a powerful reassessment of American foreign policy that directs the country away from its failing relationships toward more productive, and less costly, partnerships.
Vali Nasr is Senior Adjunct Fellow on the Middle East for the Council on Foreign Relations.
Additionally he is Professor of Middle East and South Asia Politics and Associate Chair of Research at the Department of National Security at the Naval Postgraduate School.
Vali Nasr, Dean, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, John Hopkins University, makes the case for diplomatic U.S. intervention in Syria. According to Nasr, setting the "red line" of chemical warfare obligates the Obama Administration to take action.
