The fight against international terrorism is a world-wide effort requiring international cooperation. The Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT), in its counterterrorism leadership role, works in conjunction with identified sub-regional, regional, and international organizations, and partner nations to defeat the terrorist enemy.
The efforts of these international partners are essential in achieving U.S. Government counterterrorism goals. The United States finds strength in numbers and cannot accomplish these goals alone. Further, our international partners can provide broader legitimacy to U.S. counterterrorism efforts, particularly in certain parts of the globe.
Our operations in the fight against international terrorism need to be partner-led wherever possible. Initiatives need to be developed in close conjunction with local partners, to meet their needs and address the real conditions on the ground. Ultimately our role is to enable, support, and facilitate.
