As the current century draws to a close, the United States faces an unprecedented and increasingly dangerous threat from asymmetrical organizations. These groups have the potential to inflict unprecedented damage to U.S. citizens, property, and vital interests. The threat of terrorist violence is not a new phenomenon however, as we enter into the new millennium the threat from this enemy will become significantly more deadly. As the global strategic environment has changed since the end of the Cold War, the nature of asymmetrical threats, terrorism in particular, has changed just as dramatically. History provides a foundation to examine this change, predict future trends, and identify the new breed of terrorism and the terrorists that will threaten U.S. security and interests.
