    929 words
    There are many pathologies present in the American bureaucracy and bureaucratic agencies. The major pathologies are red tape, conflict, duplication, imperialism, and waste. Each of these pathologies had at least some sort of roots in the case of the 9/11/01 terrorist attack. Had these pathologies not been prominent in the pre-9/11 bureaucratic government, it is very likely that our intelligence communities would not have failed to detect the terrorists. The first and quite possibly the most prom...

    An Explosive Answer After browsing through Stephen E. Atkins book Terrorism, I soon learned many interesting things regarding the history of terrorism. It seems this form of protest has been around since Biblical times. Also, the main goal of a terrorist is not to do damage tone pedicular person or place, but to gain publicity for an idea they support. (page 1) Evidence of this can be found by looking at the recent past of the United States. The Oklahoma bombing was one man s way of expressing h...

    Clintons Fault For 9/11 The Clinton administration was at fault for the 9/11 attacks. During the course of his presidency, Bill Clinton had more than a single chance to catch those responsible for the 9/11 tragedy. During his term of 8 years, Clinton had seen a fair share of terrorist attacks, all of which were quickly forgotten. Clinton not only sparked the attack on the World Trade Center, but he may very well have sparked hatred towards the United States by many of the Middle Eastern countrie...

    Failure to Prevent 9/11 When a giant explosion ripped through Alfred P. Murrah federal building April 19, 1995, killing 168 and wounding hundreds, the United States of America jumped to a conclusion we would all learn to regret. The initial response to the devastation was all focused of middle-eastern terrorists. "The West is under attack," (Posner 89), reported the USA Today. Every news and television station had the latest expert on the middle east telling the nation that we were victims of ji...

    America under Siege... One the greatest bastions of freedom and democracy in our world is now under siege by cowardly forces. The terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon is not only an attack against the US, but an attack against the entire Western civilised world. There is nothing more despised and cowardly then a terrorist attack on innocent bystanders, but yet it is still one of the most effective weapons in the world today. It has been used before and will probably be us...

    One of the foremost growing concerns in the modern globalized world is the increasing rate of nuclear proliferation. Coupled with the burgeoning number of nuclear devices is the threat of a terrorist possibly obtaining a weapon of such magnitude. While one could argue that the rising number of states with nuclear capability is a disturbing prospect, particularly as many pursue such capabilities without the approval of the "traditional" nuclear powers, terrorists in possession of nuclear arms pre...

    The world has entered a new venue of warfare. War and the formalities of fighting have not seen this kind of drastic mutation since the British Redcoats were forced to change their tactics of line assault. It is the age of terrorism, and as it stands now, terrorism is the voice, both domestically and internationally, for twenty-first century fighting. The biggest scare of this new reality is terrorism's ability to multi thread, which is its ability to dabble in every corner of our society. From ...

    In the post 9/11 era just about everyone in the world has heard the word terrorism. But what is terrorism exactly? By definition terrorism is to coerce by use of terror, but this definition is far too broad. Scare tactics are used all the time. Teachers often use them to encourage their students to study but this does not make them a terrorist. Terrorism is better defined as the illegal use of deadly force to instill fear in a population and its government to further political and social ideals....
