Video: Professor Bruce Hoffman discussing the death of Bin Laden

From Faith Complex, a series of Georgetown’s Program on Jewish Civilization:

On May 2, 2011, Navy SEALS cornered and killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, nearly ten years after the so-called War on Terror was first declared. Bin Laden’s death leaves unanswered questions such as: Who will inherit al-Qaeda’s leadership? What is the future of the Taliban insurgency? And will this lead to greater stability in the region? Bruce Hoffman joins Professor Sarah Fainberg to discuss these problematics in this Faith Complex.

Dr. Hoffman is Director of the Center for Peace and Security Studies and Director of the Security Studies Program at Georgetown University, where he also teaches courses on counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. Dr. Hoffman has studied terrorism for more than thirty years and has written extensively on the subject. His most recent book is Inside Terrorism, which analyzes shifts in both foreign and domestic terrorism since the September 11th attacks.
