Days after 9/11, President Bush declared a War on Terror that would "not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated." Is America in a state of perpetual war, or has the threat of terrorism justified its position as the organizing principle behind our foreign policy? In 10 years we've been in 2 wars, witnessed the Arab Spring and the death of Osama bin Laden-is it finally time to end the War on Terror?
For the motion: Peter Bergen and Juliette Kayyem
Against the motion: Richard Falkenrath and Michael Hayden.
