Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Terrorist on U.S. Soil
by Jasper Pharr
The most plausible conclusion to be made from analyzing these 215 federal convictions from the last 15 years is that we are in a new era. In this new era we will not be enjoying the life and liberties that we have taken for granted in the past. The enemy is on our soil and can be described by what they have exhibited: patience, planning, preparation, participation and perversion. No other time in recent history have we witnessed Americans willing to kill Americans on U.S. soil or Americans willing to kill Americans halfway across the globe. In no other time have our enemies been able to cross our borders with ease to plan and perpetuate the killing and maiming of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. This is a crisis in the history of this country and in the life and liberties that we enjoy.
We are in a new era and, unlike in the past, the enemy is located here on U.S. soil. In this new era, the war on foreign and domestic terrorist is not fought with boots on the ground but with high tech telecommunication worldwide. With the advent of the personal computer and the internet, the availability and accessibility of information is just a click away. Terrorists are utilizing the internet as a recruiting tool to target and radicalize Westerners and, more particularly, U.S. citizens and immigrants who are legally here in the U.S.
