Abstract : The report bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City has highlighted the complexity of political extremism. Until then, the United States focused its attention on foreign terrorists, particularly the so-called Islamic fundamentalists. Undue emphasis on this "foreign connection" can make it appear that only Middle Eastern terror is of consequence. This report resulted from a November 1994 conference cosponsored by the Strategic Studies Institute; the Institute for National Security Studies at the U.S. Air Force Academy; and the Georgia Institute of Technology. A number of terrorist-related issues were considered. The emphasis was on international terror, but the threat of domestic extremism was also examined.
