Over the past 12 years, the US has developed what can best be described as a dysfunctional relationship with terrorism. We’ve become obsessed with it and with a zero-tolerance approach to stopping it. While the former is obviously an important goal, it has led the US to take steps that not only undermine our values (such as torture), but also make us weaker (the invasion of Iraq, the surge in Afghanistan, etc).
