State report on terrorism critical of interagency cooperation
The State Department recently released the 2015 Country Reports on Terrorism. The reports assesses global terrorist threats, including terrorist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the use of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons.
Many of the country reports also appraise U.S. involvement and interagency cooperation, calling for better coordinated efforts in countering terrorist threats and citing “limited” interagency coordination as an impediment to effective operations.
