Summary
We at the U.S. General Accounting Office, as all Americans, were shocked by the coordinated terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2001. This report, which already was scheduled for release this month before the events of September 11, summarizes federal efforts to combat terrorism prior to these events. Given the tragic events of September 11, it is clear that combating terrorism efforts are now at the top of the national agenda. This report does not include recent efforts made in light of these recent attacks. While this report is a dispassionate and analytical discussion of the progress made and challenges faced by the federal government and the nation, we recognize the terrible cost of terrorism in human terms. The events of September 11 remind us that the victims of terrorism are real people-men, women, and children-and are our families, colleagues, friends, and neighbors. Our hearts go out to the victims, including the heroic first responders who were lost, and their families. We hope that this report promotes a reasoned discussion and additional actions designed to better prepare the nation to combat terrorism
