As we commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11, SU News reached out to professor and Middle East expert Osamah Khalil to answer this fundamental question: How effective was America’s post-9/11 strategy in the Middle East? Khalil is an associate professor of history in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and chair of Maxwell’s international relations undergraduate program. He specializes in U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East, the modern Middle East and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Khalil is also the author of “America’s Dream Palace: Middle East Expertise and the Rise of the National Security State,” a history of Middle East studies in the United States that was named by Foreign Affairs as a Best Book of 2017.
