National security a year after the death of Osama bin Laden
It’s been a year today since the Navy Seals mission that ended with the death of Osama bin Laden. So how is the U.S. fairing in its war on terror? Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chip Skambis spoke with former Florida Governor and longtime U.S. Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee in the years immediately following the September 11th attacks, about whether or not the country is safer than before bin Laden’s death.
And joining the analysis of the “War on Terror” is University of Florida Political Science Professor Zachary Selden. He served as Director of the Defense and Security Committee of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly until 2006. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chip Skambis spoke with him about how the terror threat is spread out geographically and how it isn’t just centered on Al Qaeda.
