Abstract: France has been especially unable to coordinate intelligence, investigation, and law enforcement into an effective program. The British created a new committee called TIGER (Terrorist Intelligence Gathering, Evaluation and Research) to help combat their problem, although other groups are critical of this group. The United States, considered a prime target by some terrorist groups, must assemble its own antiterrorist operation that will not exhibit excessive internal or external friction. 1 Note.
