Antiterrorism Campaigns in the US
The recent attacks prompted nongovernmental organizations to start antiterrorism campaigns to sensitize the nation. All these are documented in the Central Intelligence Service (CIA)
The terrorist attacks in the United States are a continuous process that the perpetrators look for loopholes to attack their target. That explains why the US security forces never take anything to chance.
The evil and changing nature of terrorism and the series of attacks on the United States and her people have made the government place several measures to combat terrorism. Examined below are some such steps.
1. Creation of the Department of Homeland Security
The DHS was created on November 24, 2002, to protect the US from terrorism. The Department has the responsibility of protecting the American populace from terrorist threats through coordinated efforts.
2. The Establishment of the If You See Something, Say Something Program
As part of coordinated efforts to counter terrorism in the US, this program sprang up to create public awareness concerning the indicators of terrorism and related crimes. It emphasizes the importance for citizens to be observant and report suspicious activities to law enforcement authorities.
3. The Enactment of the Real ID Act
Here’s another anti-terrorism campaign aimed at establishing a minimum security standard for the issuance of means of identification. The Act, which came in 2005, requires states to embrace uniform criteria for producing and issuing driver’s licenses and identification cards.
The US is one of the most terrorism-ravaged countries in the world. However, it has only made the country grow more robust. Anti-terrorism war has yielded positive results over the years, chief of them involving eliminating Jihadist leader, Osama Bin Laden. Several terrorist cells have also been exterminated across the US and globally.
However, the war’s not stopping any time soon. Instead, efforts keep getting intensified to rid the US and the world of violent elements.
