Counter-Terrorism Issues for the Next President
The next president will inherit from the current administration a dysfunctional counter-terrorism apparatus. Without a clear agenda, however, the president’s first year can be easily squandered and political capital spent on other, less important matters. In an effort to prevent this from occurring, the authors propose a three-part framework for combating terrorism that involves drying up support for terrorism, improving our intelligence capabilities and rethinking our approach to homeland security.
