ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in the U.S. to homeland security and the passing of counter terror laws and security measures. It is noted that the deadliest 9/11 terrorist attack has launched the U.S. into a different kind of war using its armed forces to fight terrorism on the world front. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has improved law enforcement preparation, training, and national responses to terrorism on the home front.
