The killing of Osama bin Laden as well as other top-ranking Al Qaeda figures and the drawing down of U.S. forces lead many to believe we are on the verge of winning the war against Islamic extremism. Not so, according to Daveed Gartenstein-Ross of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and author of “Bin Laden’s Legacy”. Why is the conventional wisdom wrong about where the war stands?

And what else needs to change for us to succeed in this war? We discuss it all with Daveed Gartenstein-Ross.
