This year marks the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks and in a new series we’ll ask the question “What Have We Learned?” in those five years. Part One looks at what we’ve learned about our own government’s response to the attacks with Ron Suskind, author of The One Percent Doctrine: Deep Inside America’s Pursuit of its Enemies Since 9/11. Also, a roundup of world media coverage of the Middle East conflict and a debate on a House bill that would restrict teens’ access to and other websites.
