1,552. 9/15/1999

An interagency government report released in September 1999, titled ‘The Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism: Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why,’  was ordered by the CIA and prepared by the Library of Congress. It read, “If ‘Iraq’s Saddam Hussein decide[s] to use terrorists to attack the continental United States [he] would likely turn to bin Laden’s al Qaeda. Al Qaeda is among the Islamic groups recruiting increasingly skilled professionals,’ including ‘Iraqi chemical weapons experts and others capable of helping to develop WMD. Al Qaeda poses the most serious terrorist threat to U.S. security interests, for al Qaeda’s well-trained terrorists are actively engaged in a terrorist jihad against U.S. interests worldwide.’ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
