According to 9/11 Commission chair Thomas Kean, “We are safer, but not safe.” As we approach the three‐​year anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, are we winning or losing the war on terrorism? What progress has been made in dismantling the al Qaeda terrorist network? How do we stem the tide of radical Islamic extremism spreading throughout the Muslim world? Is Iraq the central front in the war on terrorism? Are we better prepared to prevent and respond to another terrorist attack? What is a winning strategy for the war on terrorism?
