Clements, William E. “Focusing the Interagency Effort in Homeland Security: The Terrorism-as-War Paradigm.” Master’s Thesis, Naval War College, Newport, RI, 2003. http://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=450972 (accessed 27 September 2011).

This thesis seeks to make a distinction between the “terrorism-as-crime” and “terrorism-as-war” paradigms, and argues that there are important implications inherent in each of these approaches to the War on Terror. These divergent paradigms impede unity of effort and purpose, potentially creating a vulnerability that our enemies can exploit.
