Abstract

In the aftermath of 9-11, the United States embarked on an aggressive and costly war on terrorism in far flung regions of the world, mainly in the middle east and Afghanistan. However, the United States largely overlooked the terrorist threat to national security emanating much closer to home – in Colombia, where illegal armed groups have formed close connections to international terrorists organizations or have themselves transformed into international terrorists organizations intent on launching terrorist attacks within Colombia and throughout the Americas.
