My Threatcon Column: Spies, Traitors & Saboteurs: International Spy Museum's Traveling Exhibit Explores Terrorist Motivations, Public Response
I saw "Spies, Traitors, Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America" when the exhibit appeared at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
I liked the International Spy Museum's exhibit, but I had a few questions about the lack of a mention of al-Qaeda or a photo of Osama bin Laden anywhere in the 9/11 portion. The exhibit did however offer a row of photos of white supremacists nearby.
So, as I noted in my column for Counterterrorism magazine at the time, if one did not know better, a visitor might assume the KKK attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
One hopes the traveling exhibit has corrected that omission.
The exhibit is now appearing in St. Louis, Missouri and Alex Siegman at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch offers a piece on the exhibit.
