Here’s one way of fighting terrorism that the U.S. may be rethinking under Trump
Los Angeles Times - 03/05/2017
Daniel Aldrich, a professor of political science at Northeastern University who evaluated USAID programs aimed at preventing violent extremism in Mali, called the development-based approach promising, but not straightforward.
“I think for a while, USAID envisioned these programs as kind of a silver bullet …and I think what we found was a little more subtle,” he said.
One issue, Aldrich said, is that it’s difficult to measure the success of counterterrorism programs in general.
