Responding to Terrorism   [open pdf - 83KB]

This article contains Robert Mueller's speech on "Responding to Terrorism". Mueller outlines the work of the FBI in this respects and points out specific examples of the actions the FBI is taking in preventing and responding to terrorism. "I want to let you know how deeply committed the FBI is to working with you to ensure the safety and security of your communities now and in the future. The FBI is pouring its heart and soul into the investigation of the September 11 attacks. Every resource that can be deployed is being deployed. Every person who can be utilized is being utilized. We now have well over 7,000 FBI personnel involved, and thats about 1 in 4 of our employees. We are examining every scrap of evidence. In fact, we have gathered, sometimes working on hands and knees in the rubble and mud of crash sites, more than 3,700 separate pieces of evidence. This is easily the largest and most comprehensive investigation in our history. Beyond the investigation itself, our overriding priority right now is prevention, making sure that terrorists do not succeed in striking America and Americas cities again."
