In mid-September 2007, U.S. Army General David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker released their long-awaited and much-heralded assessments of President George W. Bush's "surge" strategy in Iraq.  Since the adoption of the surge plan, some positive developments have taken place on the ground, but the situation there remains tenuous.

Earlier in September, the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI) in Washington, D.C., hosted a conference on the political and military implications of the report on the surge.

One panel featured AEI resident scholar Frederick W. Kagan, former acting Army chief of staff General Jack Keane, and Brookings Institution senior fellow Michael O'Hanlon.  They discussed their impressions from recent trips to Iraq and commented on that which is likely to happen in the future.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports AEI.
