Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden. CNAS has asked several of its experts to look back and reflect on how U.S. policy has changed - or not - over the past year in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the region and what this means for the future of U.S. strategic priorities and military operations. LTG David W. Barno, USA (Ret.), Senior Advisor and Senior Fellow discusses how the death of bin Laden affected the war on terror.
