This is the February 4, 1992 hearing on "Terrorist Defectors: Are We Ready?," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Senator Lieberman: "This morning the Committee on Governmental Affairs will be exercising its jurisdiction over interagency coordination, particularly in the areas of national security and law enforcement. As such, we will be reviewing the effectiveness of our Nation's efforts to attract terrorist defectors and to gain the cooperation of people with information about past and future terrorist acts. As we learned at this Committee's hearing last July on our Nation's domestic and international counter-terrorism efforts in the wake of the Gulf War, obtaining information on the inner workings of terrorist networks is by far the most effective way to counter terrorism. In fact, in the world of terrorism there is just no substitute for good intelligence and particularly intelligence from the inside." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Adnan Awad, Neil J. Galagher, Howard Safir, and Victoria Toensing.
