Join Norton author Ali Soufan and Lawrence Wright Thursday, September 10th at 11:00 am CDT for a discussion of Ali's new book: The Black Banners (Declassified).
What once was secret about the U.S. post-9/11 war on terror is now out in the open, revealed in the restored edition of former FBI Special Agent Ali Soufan’s best-selling front-line report, retitled “The Black Banners (Declassified).” In 2011, when the original version was published, the Washington Post hailed it as “an important window on America’s battle with al-Qaeda” in spite of the redactions. Soufan says, “The public can finally read the complete story of what happened in their name after the events of 9/11.”
For this Council program, Soufan will be joined by Lawrence Wright, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the growth of terrorism, “The Looming Tower,” now a 2020 HULU series of the same name, in which actor Tahar Rahim plays FBI Special Agent Ali Soufan. These two experts in the field of 21st-century terror will discuss the ways the U.S. waged the war on terror before and after the infamous attacks on America.
