The Campaign Against Terrorism: Month Two Three Fronts? Military, Diplomatic, Humanitarian
As America’s anti-terrorism campaign enters its second month, the America’s Response to Terrorism project presents a press briefing assessing progress on the three-prong offensive. Brookings experts will analyze and answer questions on:
- Domestic political support for the campaign against terrorism
- The military attack on Afghanistan.
- The diplomatic effort to bring together and hold together an anti-terrorism coalition, including Islamic states.
- The use of humanitarian food drops to entice Afghans to turn against their Taliban rulers.
