Excerpt
Excerpt: As the global campaign against terrorism continues and a possible war with Iraq looms, Congress must complete action on the FY2003 appropriations bills and begin consideration of the budget for FY2004. Congressional actions are likely to reflect the reality that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States (hereafter referred to as 9/11) have, in some fundamental ways, changed America and the way it looks at the world. For many, 9/11 destroyed the illusion that the United States is invulnerable to attack from a determined enemy. The Administration and Congress are shifting U.S. policy and resources accordingly.
