James Traub, Senior Fellow at NYU's Center on International Cooperation and noted New York Times Magazine columnist, joined The Review and Debates to argue that the United States can and must conclude the War on Terror. He is a journalist and scholar specializing in international affairs, a contributing editor for Foreign Policy, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He teaches classes on foreign policy and terrorism at NYU Abu Dhabi, as well as a class on the political essay at NYU New York. His recent books include 'The Freedom Agenda', on American leadership in democracy promotion, and the widely-acclaimed biography, 'John Quincy Adams: Militant Spirit'. He was supported by Thomas Resnick (Gallatin). The Opposition was led by Hamza bin Mazhar (Stern), and supported by Akash Lodh (College of Arts and Science).

The motion was carried.
