Annual Report to Congress on Combating Terrorism, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), 2001 [open pdf - 1MB]
In the last three years that OMB has submitted the Annual Report to Congress on Combating Terrorism, efforts to counter unconventional threats such as weapons of mass destruction and cyber attack have moved from relative obscurity to become a familiar element of the national security debate. The importance of a strong defense against these emerging threats is now widely recognized, and it is clear that both the Administration and Congress are committed to building that defense. But, as evident from recent terrorism Commission reports and Congressional hearings, and the proliferation of new terrorism and domestic preparedness legislation, questions remain about how best to accomplish the task. OMB's Annual Report examines the Administration's progress in building a strong defense against emerging terrorist threats. The report provides funding and programmatic information on the Federal Government's efforts to combat terrorism and protect critical infrastructures.
