ABSTRACT

Counterterrorism in an Era of Competing Priorities   [open pdf - 836KB]

From the Document: "I happened to have testified before Congress twice in the last two weeks, along with FBI and DHS leadership, to talk about threats to the homeland. Along with our discussion of terrorism, FBI and DHS leadership laid out a dizzying array of other threats to the homeland -- election security, counterintelligence, intellectual property theft, and transnational organized crime -- the last of which kills far more Americans than terrorism ever has, or ever will. [...] I posed three questions for consideration: [1] 'What does the national risk equation look like as the Country confronts a very complex international security environment?' [2] 'How do we optimize our CT [counterterrorism] resources in the best interests of the Country when Departments and Agencies may have somewhat differing priorities?' [3] 'And if we're going to reduce efforts against terrorism how do we do so in a manner that doesn't inadvertently reverse gains of the past 18 years?'"
