Trump and Counter-Terrorism, Sixteen Years After 9/11

September 11, 2017

For special access to experts and other members of the national security community, check out the new War on the Rocks membership.

It’s been 16 years since the 9/11 attacks.

We thought a good way to commemorate the anniversary would be to take stock of the terrorist threats facing the United States today and to evaluate how the Trump administration is responding. Guest host Stephen Tankel tackles these issues with an all-star cast of experts, including Victor Asal, Tricia Bacon, Mia Bloom, Dan Byman, Julia Ebner, John Horgan, Gary LaFree, Phil Potter, Jake Shapiro, and Joe Young. This wide-ranging discussion touches on radicalization, the concerns of allies, intelligence gathering, the travel ban, Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric, the relationship between far-right and Islamist violence, and more.

We have retired our comments section, but if you want to talk to other members of the natsec community about War on the Rocks articles, the War Hall is the place for you. Check out our membership at warontherocks.com/subscribe!
