Due to the 9-11 terrorist attack on America, President Bush signed an Executive Order 13224.  The Executive Order includes comprehensive list of terrorists and groups.  To review this list please visit http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/fs/2001/6531.htm


- VAT adopts the U.S. State Department list of state-sponsored terrorism governments as follows:
North Korea, and
Sudan continue to be the seven governments that the US Secretary of State has designated as state sponsors of international terrorism.
NOTE: For descriptions of these state-sponsored terrorism governments please refer to http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/pgtrpt/2000/2441.htm

- VAT adopts the U.S. State Department view that The states that choose to harbor terrorists are like accomplices who provide shelter for criminals. They will be held accountable for their "guests'" actions. Based on the latest development in the middle east and evidence that VAT posses, we conclude that the Palestinian Authority is a state-sponsored terrorism authority.

- Given that half of the terrorist organizations on the U.S. State Department list are extreme Islamic groups and that three-quarters of the regimes deemed state sponsors of terrorism are Islamic, VAT is focusing most of its educational efforts on terrorism originating in the general vicinity of the Middle East.
