Event Type Speaker
Event: In Blind Spot, Timothy Naftali gives an historical perspective on American counterterrorism efforts since World War II - including missed opportunities that led to 9/11. Based on newly researched documents, recently uncovered archival information, and interviews with the key participants, Naftali describes earlier successes in counterterrorism and explains why they did not translate into success against Osama bin Laden later in the 1990s. Until 9/11, the domestic threat of terrorism was the largest blind spot in United States national security. Naftali concludes that open, liberal democracies like the US are incapable of effectively stopping terrorism.
