TERRORISM SALON: Peter Bergen’s Atta Follow Up


(Peter Bergen is a Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation).
Sure, but history is mostly about what happened, not what might have happened, and when Atta showed up in Afghanistan in 1999 bin Laden and his then-military commander, Mohamed Atef, tapped him to lead the 9/11 operation because of his familiarity with the West and other abilities that made him all too well-suited to implement it.

This week long terrorism salon will continue to be hosted by The Washington Note and UN Dispatch.
