The Saban Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings held a fantastic event today entitled "Global Counterterrorism: A Progress Report" featuring Ambassador Daniel Benjamin, Coordinator for Counterterrorism at the State Department. Ambassador Benjamin discussed the state of American counterterrorism efforts as President Obama's first term comes to a close, global terrorism trends, and the array of future threats facing the U.S. His prepared remarks are here. Brookings Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel then spoke about American counterterrorism efforts, and Senior Fellow Daniel Byman moderated the discussion. The full video is available here from C-SPAN.
