According to The National Security Strategy of the United States, published on September 17, 2002: ” ‘Given the goals of rogue states and terrorists, the United States can no longer rely on a reactive posture as we have in the past.’ Instead, America must identify and destroy the threat posed by those who would do us harm ‘before it reaches our borders.’ “
