  • On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked and crashed four passenger airplanes, striking the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Almost 3,000 people were killed.
  • In response, President George W. Bush (b. 1946) launched initiatives to transform U.S. security policies at home and abroad.
  • The National Security Strategy of the United States of America was issued on September 17, 2002. It defines and explains the new security policies and foreign policy goals of the United States in light of the war on terror.
  • The document describes a new emphasis on taking decisive and aggressive action to find and defeat terrorists and to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
  • Major new features of the strategy were that the United States would strike first against possible enemies and would take this action alone if necessary.
  • The National Security Strategy helped provide the theoretical basis for ongoing U.S. military action in Afghanistan and the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
