Terrorist threats did not start on 9/11/01

National Security Environment

  • Nation-State adversaries

  • Focus on COMMUNISM

  • Threat of global nuclear war

  • Dangerous but relatively predictable

  • Forward defense

  • Short of global war, U.S. homeland perceived as secure from any major threat

  • Fewer Nation-State adversaries

  • No “peer competitor;” U.S. is the only remaining “superpower”

  • Trans-national extremist groups

  • Globalization

  • Development and proliferation of“dual-use technologies” … WMD

  • Increased use of tactical TERRORISM

  • Homeland is non-secure and at risk
