ABSTRACT
Reviewing the decade of American foreign policy since 9/11 reveals a continuation of certain policies rather than a break with the past. Extradition, foreign interventions, and support for unrepresentative regimes for the sake of national interests have a long history and the response to the events saw a rise in their usage. Official mythology around 9/11 has created a false narrative of victimhood and been used to justify all manner of contraventions of the rule of law abroad and at home in the US. The Presidency of Barack Obama also represents a continuation of the previous regime's policy, and a decade on from 9/11 the memories of those lost at the site and as a result of the subsequent American "war of terror" are both recognized as victims of US foreign policy.
