Serial No. 109-50: Reviewing the State Department's Annual Report on Terrorism: Hearing before the Subcommittee on International Terrorism and Nonproliferation of the Committee on International Relations, House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, May 12, 2005 [open pdf - 637KB]
From the opening statement of Edward R. Royce: "This hearing is reviewing the State Departments annual report on terrorism. The State Departments last two editions of its yearly report on international terrorism have been mired in some controversy. The 2003 edition had to be reissued after significant errors were detected, errors that underreported the number of terrorist attacks for 2003. This year the State Department issued its 2004 report, minus its traditional annex statistically reporting on the number of terrorist attacks worldwide. This change leaves us with two documents, 'Country Reports on Terrorism', produced by the State Department, and 'A Chronology of Significant International Terrorism', produced by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), where we used to have one: 'Patterns of Global Terrorism'."Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Edward R. Royce, Philip D. Zelikow, John O. Brennan, Raphael F. Perl, Larry C. Johnson, and Darrell Issa.
