Target USA Episode 82 — 16 years after the 9/11 attacks, worries of new attacks grow

Sixteen years after the worst terror attack in U.S. history, a former senior operations officer with the CIA says, “the situation is even worse.” Mike Maness was overseas when the 9/11 attacks took place. But now he says: “As a country, we tend to have a very short memory. The average citizen seems to have forgotten, or is choosing to ignore, the fact that terrorism is still a very real threat.” On this episode, experts Tara Maller with the Counter Extremism Project and Robin Simcox of The Heritage Foundation put the lessons learned and the new threats into perspective.
