The Impact of 9/11 attacks in the US and Africa

Monday marked the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on the US. Right after the horrific attacks in 2001, the US launched the War on Terror. However, things didn’t improve for global security. Starting from 2012, another terrorist group, known as “ISIL,” rose to power. It has been increasingly destructive over the past five years, not only in the US but in many other parts of the world.

Has America’s response to terrorism made its citizens any safer? We turn to our panel to find out: Yang Mingjie, Research Fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences; Michael O’Hanlon, Senior Fellow with the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence, and the director of Research for Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution; and Mwenda Mbijiwe, security analyst and CEO of Eye.
