Fort Leavenworth is determined to execute an aggressive protection program to protect its personnel, their families, facilities, and materiel resources against terrorist attack. The goal is to deter attack by establishing a layered defense; one that maintains access control at the perimeter, implements baseline AT physical security measures as FPCON levels escalate, and establish security for identified critical assets.
The desired end state is a comprehensive aniterrorism program that effectively:
(1) Saves lives and prevents human injury
(2) Minimizes mission degradation
(3) Protects government property.
Terrorism is an enduring, persistent, worldwide threat to Army forces. Extremist ideologies and separatist movements continue to have an anti-western and anti-U.S. orientation which threatens our nation, and our Army must sustain a strong defensive posture to prevent terrorist acts and protect Army critical assets (people, critical infrastructure and sensitive information). Complacency provides the enemy with a critical intangible of war - opportunity.
The Army understands the security challenges and threat opportunity and is fully capable of managing complacency when and where necessary. Antiterrorism provides the defensive element of the Army combating terrorism program. Effective antiterrorism measures integrate a multitude of security programs which ensure protection of our people, information, infrastructure, installations, facilities, and forces.
As the Army restores balance and builds essential capacity for the future, four Army imperatives frame the work ahead: sustain, prepare, reset and transform. These imperatives cut across our entire force. As such, effective antiterrorism plans, information management, counter-measures, training, education, awareness, and resources must integrate holistically to support the Army imperatives.
