Osama bin Laden and America’s Long Journey From 9/11 to 5/1

Kurt Volker, former U.S. ambassador to NATO and a frequent participant in AGI events, takes a look at the U.S.’ transformation in the ten years since 9/11, showing how the nation has changed its security outlook to finally reach the goal of justice with bin Laden’s killing. Volker argues that while we still have many lessons to learn from those ten years, there might be a light at the end of the long tunnel.
