Afghanistan Study Group

The Afghanistan Study Group was convened by CSPC in 2007 and was co-chaired by General James Jones, USMC (Ret.) and Ambassador Thomas Pickering.  The goal of the Afghanistan Study Group was to provide policy makers with key recommendations that would lead to a revitalization of the United States’ and international community’s commitment to Afghanistan.  The report was released in January of 2008 and was used by the teams of Senator Obama and Senator McCain during discussions of Afghanistan policy during the 2008 election.
