How to dismantle the terror networks?
Thousands are still feared dead beneath the rubble
Thousands are still feared dead beneath the rubble
America's leaders have sworn to avenge the events of Tuesday morning. But what should be their response?

How will they go about exposing and eliminating the terrorists behind the attacks and whichever regime has harboured them?

To discuss how to "dismantle" terror, we brought together Prof. Paul Wilkinson from the Centre for the Study of Terrorism at St Andrews University, Simon Reeve, author of a book about Bin Laden 'The New Jackals', and Joseph Fitchett from the International Herald Tribune.

The significance of invoking Article 5 of the NATO treaty cannot be overestimated. It has never been done before.

Donald Anderson, Labour chair of the foreign affairs select committee, Paddy Ashdown, former leader of the Liberal Democrats and former shadow foreign secretary Michael Howard discuss what invoking Article 5 will mean for Britain..

Osama Bin Laden, now under house arrest in Afghanistan, believes himself to be a zealous defender of Islam, but if he did mastermind the hijacks on Tuesday, he has succeeded in alienating large sections of the Muslim world.

Dr Zaki Badawi, principal of the Muslim College in London, explains to what extent Bin Laden is representative of extreme fundamentalist Muslim opinion.
