Speach by Robert Mueller, Director FBI, to the Council on Foreign Relations, New York City, 28 Sept, 2007
Two weeks ago, not far from here, bells tolled at Ground Zero. We commemorated the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. And we marked the passage of another year without a terrorist attack on American soil.
It is important to pause and reflect on how we reached this milestone, so that we can better understand what we must do to reach another one. This task grows more complicated with every passing year.
In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the focus of the nation was crystallized. Our objective was clear: We knew who, and where, our enemies were, and we had to go after them—from their training camps to their finances to their leaders. In many ways, the solution was straightforward. This is no longer the case.
Six years later, the fight against terrorism has evolved in ways both subtle and dramatic. It is far from over. The terrorist threats we face have changed, but they have not diminished.
