The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 caused Americans to dramatically change perspectives on safety in the broader sense. Would the country be subject to unexpected, tragic events carried out by foreign-based groups like Al Qaeda or, more recently, ISIS?

A new report by New America concludes that the external danger hasn’t manifested itself, but that there are still significant concerns about plausible threats. The report is called Terrorism in America 18 Years After 9/11.

One of its authors is David Sterman, senior policy analyst for New America’s International Security Program, and he joined The Show to talk about the report.
