For over two centuries, America has faced occasional outbreaks of terrorism at home, perpetrated by both indigenous and foreign groups. But the spectacular bombing in Oklahoma City in 1995 and the September 11, 2001 attacks seemed to signify a new age, frightening many Americans and destroying their sense of domestic security. In addition, U.S. citizens and interests have been increasingly affected by acts of terrorism abroad. The challenges of terrorism, therefore, have required the United States to develop comprehensive strategies and programs to counter both conventional and unconvential threats, nationally and globally. This book provides the first comprehensive collection of key documents, statements, and testimony on U.S. government counter-terrorism policies as they evolved in the face of the changing terrorist threats. Many of the older documents are not available electronically or otherwise are not accessible. Selected executive and congressional materials highlight the government's diverse policy and program responses to terrorism. The testimony, statements, and documents provide the public articulation and face to the the largely important intelligence, law enforcement, preventative security measures, and international cooperation used in the shadowy war against terrorism. Recent entries provide a handy compilation of important post-9/11 materials. For example, the volume includes useful background information on U.S. actions against Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and Saddam Hussein and terrorism fundraising. Also included are statements from the Reagan and other administrations that relate to disputes over the appropriate use of force. Introductory chapters by Alexander andKraft provide the historical context and analysis of previous and current U.S. counter-terrorism policy including U.S. legislation. information on U.S.
