2014 Terrorism Report Released
The Department of State has just released
the Country Reports on Terrorism 2014, a report reviewing and
analyzing international progress against terrorist activities. It is
available online from the state department’s website here; previous years’ reports are available here.
The Country Reports on Terrorism reports are
mandated by 22 U.S. Code § 2656f. It has been an
annual report since 2004, when it replaced the then-published Patterns
of Global Terrorism report. The new report maintains the
non-statistical part of its terrorism review pursuant to the Intelligence
Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (P.L. 108–458), which transferred the
statistical function to the National Counterterrorism Center.
