Arlington, VA - In conjunction with the latest meeting of the Congressional Advisory Panel to Assess Domestic Preparedness for Terrorism Involving Weapons of Mass Destruction, which Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore chairs, the Governor called for immediate action from the Clinton Administration to take action on the lack of a national plan to address terrorist attacks on American citizens.

"The Clinton Administration has yet to articulate a national strategy on terrorism," said Governor Gilmore. "As chairman of this commission, I have studied this issue closely. It has become unquestionably clear that the lack of a competent and coordinated national strategy to respond to a terrorist strike on American citizens on American soil is a failure of leadership at the highest levels of the federal Government."

Governor Gilmore reiterated his call to the federal government to take the lead on developing a national terrorism response strategy.

The federal government is equipped with specialized technical resources (the FBI and FEMA) to respond to all attacks on American soil. Local and state public safety officials, who most often are first responders to accident scenes, have not yet seen any leadership or coordination from the federal government.

Currently, localities and states are assuming the burden of terrorism response, but are severely lacking in the federal support and direction regarding funding, training and information sharing they have been promised.

Governor Gilmore renewed his call to the Clinton Administration to take the lead and devise and articulate a national terrorism response strategy at once or to make known a national coordinated strategic response plan, if one already exists.

The commission meeting July 17-18th, known also as the "Gilmore Commission," took place at the RAND Headquarters in Arlington, Va. The commission has begun to outline a national strategy designed to ensure the nation’s ability to respond to and recover from a terrorist attack against American citizens on American soil.

Governor Gilmore, a former U.S. Army counter-intelligence specialist, has served as chairman of the panel since March 1999. Other members of the panel include military, counter-terrorism, and medical experts.
