Worldview 9.8.11

On September 12, 2001, Worldview presented views from various scholars on why the terrorist attacks happened and the possible consequences for U.S. foreign policy. Ten years later, we revisit the discussion with the same scholars, play back what they said in the direct aftermath of 9/11, and hear their reflections and predictions for America’s future. We'll hear from the University of Chicago's Bruce Cumings, analyst and author Anatol Lieven, Steve Clemons from The Atlantic and Worldview human rights contributor Doug Cassel.
