What the killing of bin Laden means for U.S. security and foreign policy

Listen

Hour 1

We continue our coverage of the killing of Osama bin Laden with conversations about its implications for U.S. security and foreign policy.  Starting us off is HEATHER HURLBURT of the National Security Network who offers perspectives on how post-Sept. 11 intelligence reforms enabled us capture and kill Osama bin Laden.  Then, with WILLIAM McCANTS, a research analyst who studies jihadi threats, we’ll explore the future of al-Qaeda and its role in international terrorism.  Finally, NORA BENSAHEL from the Center for a New American Security explains how recent events might impact the war in Afghanistan.
