Time to Rethink America’s Counterterrorism Strategy?

The U.S. has spent $5.9 trillion since FY2001 on counterterrorism and the military still operates in 40% of the world’s countries and leads 65 separate training programs.  Has the money spent and strain on military resources really made us safer?

All of this begs the question: is Washington’s counterterrorism strategy having the desired effect of enhancing the security of Americans? Or is the strategy simply creating more terrorists than it is killing, throwing more taxpayer money down the toilet, and further straining the U.S. military’s limited resources?
