Ten Years Later: Unlearned Lessons from 9/11

By Stan Guthrie

Since the September 11 attacks of a decade ago, grandmothers, children, and everyone in between now wait in long security lines at airports and meekly endure intrusive body scans and uncomfortable pat-downs. Clandestine intelligence-gathering monitors our phones. Under two American administrations, tenuous and expensive “nation-building” has continued in Afghanistan and Iraq, with—at best—uncertain prospects for success.

Yet despite all these changes, I wonder whether we are learning the right lessons. If we don’t, we are at risk for a repeat of 9/11—or something even worse.
