Description

This module introduces students to the key architects of the 9/11 wars known as the singular Global War on Terror. Many of these individuals believed that these wars had to be fought at all costs-even human rights. The module examines official White House records claiming the wars to be a success with research suggesting otherwise as well as civilian testimony that provides a human face to these wars. The final lesson provides students with a basic understanding of what constitutes torture, how it has been defined by the United Nations and why the US’ actions were in defiance to international law.
