Some Perspectives on the War on Terror: Anyway you look at it, it's a failure

Some Perspectives on the War on Terror: Anyway you look at it, it's a failure
The twenty-first century, at least up until this point, might well be described as the age of the terrorist. Even though most Americans and Europeans rank terrorism as low among their concerns, the repercussions when a terrorist attack does take place are greatly magnified by the sheer horror associated with the mass killing of innocent people going about their daily lives.
There are a couple of annual reports that look at terrorism as a global phenomenon. The best known is the U.S. State Department’s Annual Country Reports on Terrorism that comes out in the Summer and covers the previous year. It is mandated by Congress and is largely based on Embassy and intelligence community sources. http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/some-perspectives-on-the-war-on-terror/
