Paper Abstract

Terrorism is expected to increase on a global scale, with the US also becoming more of a target. Since there has not been a war in the lower 48 states of the continental US since about the turn of the century, the US has been quite open and lax about publishing information on our infrastructure, namely details on locations of power lines, gas and oil pipelines, etc.-- information not publically available in Europe. Examples are given, along with comments on the potential implications. Finally, brief remarks are given on some ways to address the situation.
