From Adam Smith's opening statement: "The U.S. has been forced to learn difficult lessons about fighting terrorism in the last seven years, with both successes and some failures along the way. With al Qaeda and affiliated groups still presenting a major threat, the U.S. must apply those lessons learned more comprehensively - and be open to the advice of our allies fighting the same struggle - if we are to effectively counter this persistent threat."
