The military defeat of the Islamic State appears imminent. But just as five years after the death of Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda remains a threat, it is far from clear that this victory over ISIS will prove any more lasting. Sixteen years after the 9/11 attacks the threat from terrorism has not diminished, and U.S. policy appears better at stopping terrorists than addressing the root causes of terrorism.
The Bipartisan Policy Center is welcoming former Gov. Tom Kean and former Rep. Lee Hamilton for a conference examining the evolution of terrorism from 9/11 to ISIS and beyond, the effectiveness of U.S. counter-terrorism strategy, and how to break the cycle in the future.
Date: September 8, 2017
When: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Where: Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, Paris Ballroom
