Andrew McCarthy is a Editor; National Review; senior fellow at National Review Institute and Mackubin Owens a moderator; Dean of Academics; at The Institute of World Politics.

He discussed terrorism and national security law in America. According to the speaker, there is nothing we have learned from time but today we are prepared to face terrorism after the destruction of world trade center. There is an international systematic terrorism prevailing in world and there are marginal dissatisfied people in our community. They are of the view that they can’t deny the existence of Islam, followed by 1.6 billion people. Dr. Umar Abdul Rahman was overly incapable to do anything for terrorism, but he was the master of the ideology of terrorism, which is inspiring the young generation. The speaker have met with the terrorists, in order to find out their strategies. There is violet extremism and terrorist attack in America and formation of Al-Qaeda. They required evidences to prosecute the culprit in the court. A commission was formulated as a result of destruction of world trade center with all lawyers as analyzers and no investigator was there in the team. In 1990, there were some terrorist attack by Al-Qaeda, killing 19 men. In 1998, simultaneous attacks were made on U.S. embassies. In 2011, the major icon of International terrorist (Osama bin Laden) system was killed in Pakistan. There must be a military system and a national security plan made with combination of best justice system of military and civilian systems. The courts should be strict toward the guilty. One of the biggest problem is that, terrorist don’t present themselves as terrorist, so it is difficult to recognize them.
