The Threat of Islamist Terrorism: Have We Become Complacent?

This video is temporarily unavailable.

The horrific attack last month at Fort Hood highlights what the Washington Post calls a “disturbing spike” in domestic terrorism – the most since 2001 – by “U.S. citizens or residents motivated to violence on their own or by self-initiated contact with al-Qaeda and similar groups.” This raises a number of very difficult questions associated with the security of public buildings and facilities, penetration of the American military by violent radical Islamist networks and ideologies, the radicalization process, the role of the internet, and many other issues.

Join us we start to grapple with these issues with experts in the security field.
