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.
