On C-Span: The Historical Legacy of September 11

Apparently airing this afternoon at 2:04 pm Eastern, on C-Span 3:  a plenary panel on The Historical Legacy of September 11, from this year's annual meeting of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations.  Speakers are:  Marilyn Young, NYU; Andrew Bacevich, Boston University, Melani McAlister, George Washington University, and yours truly.  The program is archived on the C-Span website.

Bacevich is especially compelling on this topic.  My remarks address the fusion of law and war in the post-9/11 years -- at home as well as on the battlefield.
