WWR-November 2004

This report focuses on countries involved in the so-called global war against terrorism, and includes most places where the U.S. has made arrangements mainly since 9/11 to combat potentially (or actively) militant Islamist groups wherever they may be. Situations in countries where future major conflicts may erupt are also covered. Partially for space reasons, Latin America is not covered here, despite the extensive overt and covert U.S. activity throughout the continent and reports of terrorist training camps in remote areas of the Amazon.
