Introducing a new report from Foreign Policy In Focus

New FPIF Task Force Report on Terrorism

A Secure America in a Secure World

This 56-page report posits that the open-ended global war on terror is counterproductive, making U.S. citizens more vulnerable to terrorist attacks at home and abroad. It offers an alternative approach that would focus on preventing successful terrorist attacks by improving homeland security, bringing terrorists to justice and addressing terrorism’s root causes.

“The Bush administration's go-it-alone foreign policy has weakened the very organizations and alliances necessary for an effective global effort to combat terrorism, and the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations don't go far enough” says John Gershman, FPIF co-director and principal author. “The U.S. shouldn't fight a war on terrorism. Instead, the nation should tackle this threat through a strong, coordinated strategy that emphasizes civilian operations, improved homeland security, and international cooperation.”

A task force of 23 experts, including former government officials who served in the Reagan and Clinton administrations, and a relative of a 9/11 victim, have endorsed the report.
