September 11 produced unprecedented political will in the United States to fight international terrorism with all of the energy and power at the collective disposal of America and its allies. That principle has already been applied to al-Qaeda and is now being applied to Saddam Husayn's Iraq. But what effect has the U.S.-led "war on terror" had on the leaders and state sponsors of other Middle Eastern terrorist organizations? in this sober, fact-filled assessment of U.S. counterterrorism policy, Matthew Levitt argues that without marshalling the resolve and resources to fight terror on all its fronts simultaneously, the West will not fully come to grips with the implications of September 11.
