Christopher A. Preble and Benjamin Friedman reflect on U.S. foreign policy since September 11, 2001. Is the threat of terrorism a sufficient reason for the U.S. government to spend more on defense than ever before, or have we only ended up terrorizing ourselves?

Christopher A. Preble is the Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies and Benjamin H. Friedman is a Research Fellow in Defense and Homeland Security Studies at the Cato Institute.
