Question description

Case Study 1: Impetus of the DHS
Due Week 2 and worth 50 points

Prior to the 9/11 attacks, there were a number of other “terrorist” events that occurred on both U.S. soil and abroad. Read the article discussing the Oklahoma City bombing, located at http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/history/famous-cases/oklahoma-city-bombing, and the article discussing the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, located athttp://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2008/february/tradebom_022608. These events, however, did not have the impact on the American psyche and the political repercussions that accompanied the 9/11 attacks, such as the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). A Webpage dedicated to the creation of the DHS is located athttp://www.dhs.gov/creation-department-homeland-security.

  1. Describe why the 9/11 attacks was the impetus for forming the Department of Homeland Security and raising greater awareness of terrorist attacks.
  2. Hypothesize why the Oklahoma City and 1993 World Trade Center bombings did not cause the dramatic impact as that of 9/11.
  3. Predict how these two (2) historical attacks could have potentially been diminished or avoided with the protections in place today.
