No one was fully prepared for the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, and more than ten years after that historic day, former United States Senator Russ Feingold cautions that America may still be unprepared against terroristic threats. In his new book, “While America Sleeps: A Wake-up Call for the Post-9/11 Era,” he examines America’s reaction to the 9/11 attacks, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the precautions taken by the U.S. to defend itself against possible future attacks, including criticism of the Obama administration for its actions in Iraq and over confidence in the degradation of Al Qaeda’s threat. Feingold analyzes the ramifications of Osama bin Laden’s assassination and advises Americans to avoid being diverted by partisanship and religious or cultural differences, and to guard against overall complacency in an increasingly globalized international community. Senator Feingold joins Patt in studio.
