“More than two decades after 9/11, with a staggering price tag of $8 trillion and the tragic loss of nearly 5 million lives, the horror of the events and its aftermath continue to haunt. While the overt conflicts of the ‘Global War on Terror’ have receded with the U.S.’s departure from Iraq and Afghanistan, many of today’s tensions and political unrest can be directly traced to the forces set in motion during the NATO-led global war.” (09/11/23)
