The author reflects on the strategies undertaken by the U.S. government after the September 11 attacks by Al Qaeda. He states that America's direct conflict with the terrorist group Al Qaeda has resulted in several casualties and loss of defense expenditure. It is argued that the war against terrorism has brought little in terms of conclusive results. He suggests that its time to look back and examine where transnational terrorism and the anti-American jihad is heading.
