After Beslan: Measuring the Global Response to Terrorism in Russia

Recorded on September 27, 2004

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

A terrorist assault on the first day of school in Beslan, Russia, left over three hundred innocent children and adults dead. As one of the world's most horrific terrorist acts since September 11, 2001, this cruel massacre is a reminder that radical Islamist terrorists do not hesitate brutalizing and murdering children to shock and intimidate. Join us as a distinguished panel of experts provides global perspectives on the attack, including: the anti-terrorist and political response in Russia, the view from Islamic communities around the globe, and the American response, both to the danger of transnational terrorism and to the unthinkable - a similar attack on U.S. soil.
