The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as the unlawful use of force against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, or any segment thereof, in an act of furtherance of political or social objectives.

According to the Department of Home security “the consequence of another terrorist attack would far outweigh the cost of investing in alternative locations, and additional protective measures” (philpott, 2007a).
