Excerpt
Excerpt: On the morning of September 11, 2001, a small group of dedicated fanatics hijacked four commercial airplanes in flight, crashed three of them into buildings symbolic in various ways of what they found offensive about the United States, and changed the course of American history. Shortly after this occurred, a group of CRS analysts was called upon to assess the possible effects of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. economy and the ability of the government to deal with them. This was but a small part of a much larger CRS effort on various aspects of terrorism that became an on-line electronic briefing book. This briefing book has been extraordinarily successful and has been used thousands of times by congressional staff. Over time, most of the economic entries served their purposes and were withdrawn.
