On Friday, CNN published an opinion piece I wrote about the political discourse relating to terrorism in the US and Europe.

Here is an excerpt: 

The attacks in Paris and San Bernardino have created an even greater sense of urgency that something must be done to prevent further attacks in the United States and Europe. But while this is not surprising, the solutions being advocated, expanding military operations against ISIS and identifying whether those fleeing the Middle East pose a threat, seem to miss the point.

After all, the most significant U.S. response to the threats facing the West post-9/11 was regime change in Iraq and Afghanistan, an approach that cost thousands of American lives and a trillion dollars, but which has failed to eliminate the threat to American citizens while leaving the Middle East in an even bigger mess than it was.

As always, look forward to feedback.
