Reflections on the 9/11 Decade

RUSI Journal, 1 August 2011
Iraq, Terrorism
How will history judge 9/11 and the decade that followed?

The events of 11 September 2001 shocked the Western world, catapulting the US and its allies into Afghanistan and Iraq. Ten years on, those conflicts have cost blood and treasure, and vilified the ‘War on Terror’. How will history judge 9/11 and the decade that followed? Stephen Fidler, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Jack Spence, John Nagl, David Omand, Aaron Friedberg, Marcus Tanner, Richard Dowden and Tim Butcher offer their thoughts on the significance of 9/11 for the US, Europe and beyond.
