Nineteen years have passed since the tragic attacks on September 11, 2001. Are we safer today? Though billions have been spent on gathering intelligence, blocking financial assets, and trying to stop radicalization, extremist ideology is still thriving. Recruits are getting younger. "Hate armies" are growing in America and around the world. What are the solutions to this expanding threat and what lessons have we learned from 9/11? Have we made progress in the fight against extremism? Why is countering violent extremism important? Why are violent far-right extremists surging in the 21st century?
