As the 10-year anniversary of September 11 approaches, we focus here on our coverage of the topic at Aspen Ideas.
Diplomats, experts, and politicians gathered in Aspen to discuss topics like: Could another 9/11 happen? What have we learned after 60 years of nation building? What have we gained and lost in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? What will happen this September when the UN votes on Palestine's declaration of state?
As strife continues in the Arab world, these discussions from this past summer are as relevant as ever.
