Usama bin Laden letters exposed.
Situated at the nexus of theory and practice, the Combating Terrorism Center serves as an important national resource that rigorously studies the terrorist threat and provides policy-relevant research while moving the boundaries of academic knowledge. The CTC’s distinguished scholars, international network of experts, and access to senior U.S. government leadership set it apart from any other like enterprise.
The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies’ International Center for Terrorism Studies hosted a panel discussion, “Al-Qa’ida: Quo Vadis?” on Monday, April 30, 2012. The death of Usama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, signified a major milestone for the United States and the international community’s war against terrorism. On the first anniversary of “Operation Neptune Spear,” an assessment of short- and long-term strategic and tactical lessons learned was offered by a team of experts who have been studying and combating al-Qa’ida for the past twenty years.
