The 9/11 terrorist attacks twenty years ago launched a revolution in every aspect of our national security apparatus. Whether though the enactment of new laws or the reinterpretations of existing authorities, the United States radically changed its posture to address this new challenge posed by those who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the 9/11 attacks, and those who harbored them. This two-day virtual seminar will attempt to evaluate the successes and failures in that effort, and the efforts still required to keep our nation safe while protecting our liberties.
