Terrorism: July 31, 2002


Homeland Security- US intelligence agencies have issued an alert that Islamic terrorists have managed to smuggle shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles (SAMs) into the US. Reportedly, these are Russian-made SA-7s and/or Pakistani-built copies of similar Chinese missiles. The CIA's counter-terrorism center has a new operational commando unit dedicated to preemptively attacking and destroying terrorist cells. Only the president can order the unit to conduct an attack, which would technically be murder or at least a non-judicial execution. --Stephen V Cole
