Effective Strategies Against Terrorism Hearing

U.S. House Committee on Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats, and International Relations

Tuesday, February 03, 2004 10:00 AM


Congressman Christopher Shays (R-CT), Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats, and International Relations, will convene an oversight hearing to assess the extent to which U.S. strategies to combat terrorism articulate clear vision statements, goals, and objectives to protect the United States from terrorist attacks.

On March 3, 2003, the Subcommittee held a hearing entitled, Combating Terrorism: A Proliferation of Strategies. The purpose of that hearing was to examine the recently developed national strategies to combat terrorism. The February 3, 2004 hearing will continue that investigation and focus on strategies which include: The National Strategy of the United States of America, The National Strategy for Combating Terrorism, the National Strategy for Homeland Security and the National Strategy to Combat Weapons of Mass Destruction. Witnesses at this hearing will address the desirable characteristics of an effective national strategy and evaluate if the various strategies meet these criteria.

The February 3, 2004 hearing will convene at 10:00 am in room 2247 of the Rayburn Building in Washington, D.C.
