ABSTRACT

Terrorism, the Media, and the Government   [open pdf - 625KB]

"From 1980 through 1986 the US military was the target of over 250 terrorist attacks. During the same period, American diplomats and diplomatic facilities worldwide were targets in 228 attacks. Close to 5000 international terrorist attacks occurred during that seven-year period, which means that during the decade to date, a US military or diplomatic establishment was attacked about every five days and a terrorist incident occurred every 12 hours. These statistics do not include the fatal attacks in October of last year on two US Air Force sergeants and one retired US Air Force sergeant outside Clark Air Base in the Philippines."
