When al-Qa`ida killed 2,977 people on September 11, 2001, our country had no greater priority than to stop Bin Laden and his followers from continuing their campaign of terror and plunging the world into a backwards vision of oppression and violence.


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) today released a mobile app, aCTknowledge, that shares unclassified counterterrorism reports, analysis, training resources, and alerts. The app is a first-of-its-kind platform that provides real-time unclassified intelligence on potential terrorist activities that may impact our country.


Seth Jones, Harold Brown Chair and Director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Transnational Threats Project, joins National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) Director Chris Miller to discuss Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, Iran, Russia, and more.


This year, the United States and its allies have sustained pressure against key terrorist organizations, including al-Qa’ida, ISIS, and groups aligned with Iran, disrupting numerous plots and further diminishing their ability to target the United States and U.S. interests overseas.
