"The liberation of Mosul and the inevitable, approaching liberation of Raqqa in Syria will not be the end of the Islamic State and its evil ideology. But they crush the group’s pretense to having an actual “state” based upon it. As its surviving leaders scurry to the corners of the desert, no longer can they claim to head a winning movement. Their defeat diminishes the inspiration for violent extremists, or simply lost souls on social media, to attack Americans and our friends. This is a necessary step forward in combating terrorism. Americans are safer for it."
Han Kristensen, Director, Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists will present a seminar about the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review on Tuesday January 26, 2010 at 9:30am in the Belfer Center library.
