From the Paper:

"There are many startling and disturbing similarities between the 1993 and 2001 World Trade Center bombings, which illustrate how vulnerable our country is to terrorist attack, and how vulnerable the World Trade Center was as a target. Our country is extremely susceptible to further attack, as these two incidents clearly indicate. There was also much dissimilarity between the bombings, which illustrates how the perpetrators learned from their mistakes, and attempted to correct them to inflict the most damage. Both bombings clearly fall under the recognized and accepted definition of terrorism, as defined by the FBI:
Terrorism has been defined as "the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives" (Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1992, p. i) (Peterson 116)."
