As the first edition of Terrorism Law suggests, terrorism, like crime, can never be completely eradicated. Over the past few years, as previous editions were released, the United States has faced many changes and challenges pertaining to the War on Terror, and continues to do so today. Although it was realized at the time the war started that legal and policy challenges would exist, no one could have predicted exactly what events would occur. Much has changed since September 11, 2001 in both the law and policy areas. The biggest challenges have become realistically fighting and winning the War on Terror under a democratically based rule of law, and protecting human rights and civil liberties in an ongoing wartime situation. It has been determined that the United States of America must accomplish three things: identify and appreciate the threat of militant Islamic global terrorism; do a better job of bringing the battle to the terrorists and the nations that harbor them; and promote and sustain a dedicated democracy-building campaign in new governments such as those in Afghanistan and Iraq.
