The Future of Terrorism: Combating the Next Wave

This video is no longer available online.

The United States has seen great progress in the war on terror in the decade after 9-11. On the home front, at least 40 Islamist-inspired terrorist plots aimed at the United States have been thwarted since September 11. Most of these have been due to the efforts, training and experience of law enforcement personnel. On the other front, in the long war abroad, terrorist networks have been largely dispersed and disaggregated. Specifically, al-Qaeda has been substantially defeated in Iraq, placed on the run in Afghanistan, and hounded in Pakistan. The war on terrorism, however, is not yet won. In order ensure that the likes of al-Qaeda never threaten Americans with another major attack, the United States must stay the course and develop a robust strategy for the next wave of terrorism.
