The State Department has released its Patterns of Global Terrorism report for 2002, which shows a gain: terrorist acts were down last year.

According to the report the seven designated state sponsors of terror are Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Syria, and Sudan: “Iran remained the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 2002” and “Iraq planned and sponsored international terrorism in 2002. Throughout the year, the Iraqi Intelligence Services (IIS) laid the groundwork for possible attacks against civilian and military targets in the United States and other Western countries. The IIS reportedly instructed its agents in early 2001 that their main mission was to obtain information about US and Israeli targets.”
