Since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, the country has gone on the offensive against terrorists around the world. But this fight cannot go on indefinitely. In a major policy speech last week, President Obama said the US must define counterterrorism efforts not as a boundless global war on terror, but rather a series of persistent, targeted efforts to dismantle specific extremist networks. Join us on this week’s “On the Line” to talk about the implications of this speech and the President’s counterterrorism strategy.
