Waging the War on Terror

Waging the War on Terror

(p.302) 10 Waging the War on Terror
From Berlin to Baghdad

Hal Brands

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses the war on terror, which unfolded during the early 2000s. This showed that the strategy of the Bush administration was not nearly well integrated as it had originally appeared. At the same time, the war on terror quickly evolved into a political lever, and antiterrorism remained a powerful rhetorical tool. In the end, the return to coherence brought about by 9/11 had mixed results for the practice and politics of U.S. diplomacy.

Keywords:   war on terror, 2000s, strategy, Bush administration, political lever, antiterrorism, rhetorical tool, coherence, U.S. diplomacy
