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

September 11, 2017

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.
