Abstract:

In 1982, the United States committed soldiers to peacekeeping duty as part of the Multinational Force and Observers in the Sinai, Egypt. The duration of the commitment was open-ended and there was no exit strategy or periodic comprehensive review process established. Now, almost two decades later, the commitment remains open-ended. There is still no exit strategy, and the risk to U.S. forces stationed anywhere in the Middle East continues to grow. How did the United States allow this to happen and what are the alternatives
