This Release states: "U.S. Embassies around the world play a vital role on the frontlines of our counterterrorism efforts. With representation from key agencies involved in the war on terror, embassies serve as the locus for coordinating the critical elements of national power: diplomacy, economic strength, law enforcement, intelligence and military might. Embassies also play a decisive role in fostering cooperation with partner nations and are a focal point for providing training to bolster the counterterrorism capabilities of these countries."
