The one-year anniversary of the Obama presidency is time for a review of the administration’s counterterrorism policies. What are those policies, and how well have they met the challenge of terrorism over the past year? Does the absence of a formal counterterrorism strategy leave the nation exposed? Should the administration produce such a strategy and a terrorism communications plan aimed at thwarting overreaction to any future attack? These key questions, and more, will be explored at a Cato Institute policy forum featuring counterterrorism and communications experts, followed by an address by Daniel Benjamin, a top Obama administration counterterrorism official.
