'We’re in a generational fight...on a par with the struggle against communism or Nazism'

Nasser Weddady spends his days countering the ideology of what he calls "radical jihadi islamism." He's used to the cycle of terrorist atrocities and post-attack rhetoric. But Paris really got to him. It brought home how complicated it all is, and how frustrated he is that we have learned all kinds of lessons since 9/11 that we fail to apply.

Updated

Two of the suicide bombers who carried out attacks in Brussels on Tuesday are brothers. Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui, both Belgian nationals, had criminal records, according to Belgian officials Wednesday. At least 31 people were killed and 270 injured in the attacks at the city’s main airport and at a subway station in central Brussels. A manhunt is underway for a suspect who was recorded by a security camera alongside Ibrahim el-Bakraoui at the airport. Tuesday's violence was the deadliest terror attack in Europe since the Paris attacks in November.
