Terror attacks at lowest point in 30 years in 2003


"International acts of terror in 2003 were the fewest in more than 30 years, according to the U.S. State Department's annual terrorism report released Thursday.

"The Patterns of Global Terrorism report said 190 acts of international terrorism occurred in 2003 -- a slight drop from 198 attacks the previous year and the lowest total since 1969.

"The figure marked a 45 percent decrease in attacks since 2001, but it did not include most of the attacks in Iraq, because attacks against combatants did not fit the U.S. definition of international terrorism.

"Cofer Black, the State Department's ambassador at large for counterterrorism, told a news conference that he attributed the decrease to 'unprecedented collaboration between the United States and foreign partners to defeat terrorism.' "

It would appear that Iraq, rather than being a diversion from the war on terror has diverted the terrorist into a hostile environment. Ted Kennedy may be the biggest mistake in the history of the Senate when it comes to rational thought on the war on terror.
