U.S. Government Issues Annual Reports on Terrorism

Which groups pose a threat to the United States? How effective are various regional governments in combating terror, and how is the U.S. contributing to their efforts? The U.S. Department of State addresses these issues in Country Reports on Terrorism 2008, which the State Department published on April 30.

The Country Reports on Terrorism (CRT) are created to comply with Title 22 of the U.S. Code, Section 2656f, which requires the State Department to submit to Congress "a full and complete annual report on terrorism for those countries and groups meeting the criteria of the Act." Past Country Reports on Terrorism can also be found on the State Department's website (in 2004 this series replaced Patterns of Global Terrorism).

In the CRT 2008 you can find overviews for world regions, information about state sponsors of terrorism, a list of U.S.-designated terrorist groups, and statistics from the National Counterterrorism Center. The NCC has also released a 2008 Report on Terrorism.
