RAND's Legacy of Terrorism Research
The Gilmore Comission—formally known as the "Advisory Panel to Assess Domestic Response Capabilities for Terrorism Involving Weapons of Mass Destruction"—was a U.S. Congressional advisory panel chaired by former Virgina governor Jim Gilmore. The RAND Corporation provided staff support to the commission.
The commission met from 1999 to early 2004, and provided five reports to two U.S. presidents during what would turn out to be the formative years of U.S. counter-terrorism policy. The materials on this site are archived here as a matter of public interest.
