While the political climate of this country indicates militias are not going away any time soon, the US government does understand the threat posed by militias. Intelligence collection from multiple disciplines aids the US government in deterring domestic terrorism from militias and assists in operations that serve convictions to the guilty. While their attacks are sporadic and uncoordinated, they still pose a significant threat to the domestic security of the US. Given the political climate in this country over the last eight years, far right extremism has grown considerably and will likely continue. Law enforcement should be vigilant to the possibility of right win extremism in the form of militias in their communities. We cannot afford to have enemies within while dealing with enemies without like Al Qaida and

The events of September 11, which are partly associated with errors in the work of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), raised the issue of reforming the agency both in the countries of the old democracy and in the countries of the new democracy. Most of the discussions about reforming the work of the special services in the fight against terrorism are reduced to the exchange of information between the structures of power. However, it is only by understanding the nature of the tasks of the special services in combating terrorism that it is possible to develop the necessary "architecture" or organizational structure suitable for the solution of the task. The task of the special services at this stage
The planner of the 9/11 attacks was Islamist Extremist Group, Al-Qaeda. This group was developed by Usama bin Laden among others. This group was originally created in the 1980’s to support the war effort in Afghanistan against the Soviets. In around 1989, Al-Qaeda dedicated itself to further going against non-Islamic governments with force and violence. Usama bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia in 1957 on March 10, 1984. Al-Qaeda has been all over the Middle East fighting Non-Islamic governments. Some of these include, Yemen, New York, Somalia, Egypt, Kenya, And Tanzania are just a few of the places they have had uprising problems with (FBI Archives, The Guardian). 15 of the 19 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia.
When the terrorist attacks occurred on 9/11 it did more than just affect the comfort level of American citizens. It had an all around impact on how this country will be run for years to come.

Al-Shabaab as a terrorist group poses a significant threat in Somalia and in the global community. This paper will start by discussing the background. In this part the paper will show how the group has evolved from Al-Ittihad Al-Islam (AIAI) to the Islamic Court Union (ICU) and lastly to Al-Shabaab. Before discussing the group’s threat of national security, homeland and international, this paper will provide the conceptual meaning of key terminology, such as national security, homeland security, international security and globalization. It is important to understand these concepts before moving toward the main argument of the paper. After providing the framework for key concepts, the paper will discuss the group’s threat to Somalia in two areas, national security and homeland security. The paper will go further and identify the threats posed by the group on other nations’ homeland security and international security. We will use East African countries and the United States examples. The paper will provide evidence to support how globalization has shaped and fueled the threats from Al-Shabaab. It will then discuss the primary response from the United States and from African countries through AMISOM. The paper will provide the way forward and suggestions for the response of the international community to Al-Shabaab. In conclusion, we will try to alert the international community that although the group has been experience hard times in Somalia, it is unwise to
