2011 National Strategy for Counterterrorism

The White House released it new counterterrorism strategy yesterday.

According to the factsheet, "this strategy builds upon the progress we have made in the decade since 9/11, in partnership with Congress, to build our counterterrorism and homeland security capacity as a nation.  It neither represents a wholesale overhaul—nor a wholesale retention—of previous policies and strategies."

Key components include:
The Threat We Face
Principles That Guide our Counterterrorism Efforts
Overarching Goals
Area of Focus
Other Terrorist Concerns Requiring Focus and Attention
