'Lindsey Wilson Conversations' Episode 3: The War on Terror

Posted on Wednesday, November 04, 2009 [10:15 AM]

Most Americans mark the U.S. war on terrorism's starting point as Sept. 11, 2001, when members of Al-Qaeda terrorist group hijacked four jetliners, crashing two into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and crashed the fourth into a field near Shanksville, Pa.
But as LWC Assistant Professor of Political Science Stefan Brooks points out in a recent episode of "Lindsey Wilson Conversations," the United States had been in an unofficial war against for more than 10 years before the 9/11 attacks.
"Sept. 11 really brought home to the American people and the American government this war that had actually been waged against the United States for 10 years," says Brooks, who is teaching a course this fall about the war on terror.
A weekly Internet show, Lindsey Wilson Conversations features a member of the LWC community discussing a topic of interest to him or her while enjoying a beverage of his or her choice.
