In a new report from the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Ash Carter, PhD, Belfer Center director, MIT Innovation Fellow and former US defense secretary, outlines lessons learned from the US campaign against ISIS. “Today, Iraqi and coalition soldiers—backed by an American force the nest the world has ever known— have all but routed ISIS in two of its most important former strongholds: Raqqa and Mosul,” his report summary reads. “How America, together with her friends and allies, turned the tide against a common enemy is a story of good fortune, critical leadership decisions, and skill and bravery on the part of young men and women in uniform.”
