Counterterrorism has become a major focus of the FBI's investigative portfolio. As the agency describes it, “The FBI’s overriding priority is to protect America from terrorism attacks. Our mission is to identify and disrupt potential terrorist plots by individuals or terror cells, freezing terrorist finances, sharing information with law enforcement and intelligence partners worldwide, and providing strategic and operational threat analysis to the wider intelligence community.” The webpage above links to a number of FBI resources on the subject, including a list of most-wanted terrorists and a primer on how the agency conducts its terrorism-related investigations.
