What We’ve Learned in the Two Decades Since 9/11

Episode 189

The last twenty years of American counterterror and national security efforts have had profound impacts on our nation and the world. On the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we ask, how have we done? What worked and what didn’t work? Were processes, policies, laws, and resources adequate to the requirements? Did we adhere to those policies and laws? And perhaps most importantly, what lessons have we learned to ensure our nation and its allies can do better in the coming decades?
