This is the October 2, 1985 hearing on "Mercenary Training Camps: U.S.-Based Private Counterterrorism/Mercenary Training Camps," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Security and Terrorism of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the Opening Statement of Jeremiah Denton: "This morning we will commence the hearing on U.S.-based private counterterrorism/mercenary training camps, a growing national phenomenon which may impact our foreign policy, our relations with other national states, the safety of the public, and the image of the United States abroad. In November 1984, Alabama was castigated in the national and international media for being the home of a training camp for terrorists and assassins. Some of the charges were incorrect and unfair. However, there is room for concern and a need for investigation."

Webster.
