AEI: Winning the war against Islamist terror: A conversation with Chairman Michael McCaul

September 20, 2016 4:00 PM | AEI Auditorium, 1789 Massachusetts Ave. NW

Fifteen years ago on September 11, Americans experienced firsthand the grave consequences of Islamist terrorism flourishing abroad. Following recent terror attacks in Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, Nice, Istanbul, and beyond, it has never been more apparent that the U.S. and its allies are in a generational, ideological struggle against a determined enemy and that we are not winning.

How can we thwart lone wolf attacks and stop radicalization at home? How can America and its partners prevent power vacuums from turning into terrorist safe havens?

Join AEI for a conversation with House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul as he releases a new national counterterrorism strategy outlining how the U.S. can protect the American homeland, take the fight to Islamist extremists abroad, and prevail in this long war.
