dc.description.abstractOne of the first and most successful cases of terrorism prevention in American history is also one of the least known. In June 1993, only four months after the first World Trade Center bombing, a group of men was arrested while plotting to bomb a number of targets in the New York City area, including the UN Headquarters, the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, and the George Washington Bridge. It was one of the first radical Islamist terrorist plots thwarted within the U.S., and it led to what remains today America’s longest and most complex international terrorism trial. This paper argues that the “day of terror” plot remains important today because it provides an early model for how a group of loosely affiliated extremists can come together, train, plan, and very nearly succeed in carrying out an attack inflicting wide scale death and destruction.en_US
