Two decades after 9/11, militants have only multiplied

A new study has found that roughly 230,000 jihadi fighters currently operate in about 70 countries – almost four times as many Sunni Islamic militants are operating today as on September 11, 2001, writes Eric Schmitt in the New York Times.

The Center for Strategic and International Studies’ transnational threats project leader Seth G. Jones said, “Some of these groups do want to target Americans overseas and at home, particularly the Islamic State and Al Qaeda. All this indicates that terrorism is alive and well, and that Americans should be concerned.”

The report discusses the many ways that Western attempts to stem terrorism have failed.
