ABSTRACT

Political Violence Against Americans 2001   [open pdf - 3MB]

Political Violence Against Americans is produced by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security's Office of Intelligence and Threat Analysis (DS/DSS/ITA) to provide readers with a comprehensive picture of the broad spectrum of political violence that American citizens and interests have encountered abroad on an annual basis. This publication encompasses major anti-U.S. incidents; how-ever, some incidents have been omitted due to the sensitive nature associated with them. This document reads like a fact sheet and is organized into the following sections: a statistical overview of 2001; Western Hemisphere affairs (WHA); Europe (EUR); Sub-Saharan Africa (AF); Near East (NEA); South Asia (SA); East Asia and Pacific (EAP); Americans in captivity: 2001; special report; suicide attacks against the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon; and Operation Enduring Freedom.
