Can the coming transition out of Afghanistan be informed by lessons from the U.S. military-diplomatic transition in Iraq?

This event will look at a newly released RAND study titled Ending the U.S. War in Iraq: The Final Transition, Operational Maneuver, and Disestablishment of the United States Forces–Iraq, which explores how our experience in the military exit and transition of responsibilities in Iraq might help to inform future U.S. transition planning in Afghanistan.
