More aggressive prevention efforts and better communication between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies is helping the nation win the war on terrorism, U.S. Attorney General John D. Ashcroft said Wednesday in Connecticut.

Saying it is “more urgent than ever” for the country to continue its aggressive efforts at disabling terrorists, the nation’s attorney general reiterated his stand that efforts must focus on prevention, not prosecution, and that law enforcement agencies must work together to make that happen.

His stop in Connecticut is part of a cross-country field trip he is making to meet with state task forces to discuss anti-terrorist efforts, according to the Hartford Courant.
