The Military Partnerships: Terrorism

United States Northern Command

U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) was established October 1, 2002, to provide command and control of Department of Defense (DoD) homeland defense efforts and to coordinate defense support of civil authorities. NORTHCOM defends America’s homeland—protecting our people, national power, and freedom of action.*

*From NORTHCOM website.

North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)

North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a United States and Canada binational organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning and aerospace control for North America. Aerospace warning includes the monitoring of man-made objects in space, and the detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles, through mutual support arrangements with other commands.**

**From NORAD website.

2011 NORAD and USNORTHCOM Posture Statement

Posture Statement: Counterterrorism and Force Protection. Because violent extremists present a threat that currently exhibits both the capability and the intent to attack our nation, Counterterrorism and Force Protection continue to be a vital focus area for USNORTHCOM and NORAD.***

***From Winnefeld, A.J.A. (2011). Posture Statement, p. 3.

Refer to the above three sources plus the NRF when answering the questions below:

  1. How would you include the DoD in your Emergency Response Plan? Or would you?
  2. Scenario: A federal building suddenly blows up in your city where you are in charge of the Emergency Response Plan. You are called by law enforcement officers who note that they have apprehended three military personnel with explosives in their possession. The two men and one woman are listed as AWOL; they have threatened that if they are not released, another operative will blow up more undisclosed buildings. The police have contacted the FBI and will detain the personnel. Meanwhile, two more buildings explode near a military outpost in which civilians and military personnel were killed. What will be your first step? Why? Be specific and cite your sources.
  3. As Incident Commander, would you be in charge of posting U.S. Army personnel in strategic locations in your town during a terrorist attack? Please cite specific policy in your response.
