Alternate Title: 9/11 Commisssion, Eighth Public Hearing: Statement of Samuel L. Berger , March 24, 2004

The eighth public hearing of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States was held March 23-24, 2004 in Washington, DC. The two-day hearing investigated the formulation and conduct of U.S. counterterrorism policy, with particular emphasis on the period from the August 1998 embassy bombings to September 11, 2001. In this testimony, Samuel L. Berger, discusses the National Security Council's role in counterterrorism policy during his tenure, as well as the national strategy against terror that he advanced. Mr. Berger then focuses on the future -- the challenges he believes the United States still faces in dealing with the deadly jihadist terrorist threat, and what he believes must be done to enhance U.S. capabilities and protect U.S. citizens
