Report Calls U.S. a Top Target for Terror Attack Within a Year

The United States is the fourth most likely of 186 countries to be the target of a terrorist attack within the next 12 months, a research company based in London says in a report to be released on Monday. The company, World Markets Research Center, ranks Colombia, Israel and Pakistan as the only countries with a greater terror risk than the United States in the report, called the World Terrorism Index. The company provides research on the risk of terrorism for 500 public and private multinational clients. They include the European Commission, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, General Motors, Microsoft, Intel, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, and Shell Services International. “Another Sept. 11-style terrorist attack in the United States is highly likely,” the report states. “Networks of militant Islamist groups are less extensive in the U.S. than they are in Western Europe, but U.S.-led military action in Afghanistan and Iraq has exacerbated anti-U.S. sentiment.” Full Story
