In the United States, the most recent significant terrorist attacks (prior to September 11, 2001) were bombings.

The 1993 bombing in the parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Trade_Center_bombing) resulted in thousands of injuries and five deaths. In the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, 168 people were killed.

Terrorist attacks take various forms depending on the terrorists' political motives and the technological resources available to them. They may involve the use of conventional weapons, explosive devices, and chemical and biological agents. Although the U.S. government constantly takes measures to ensure public safety, there are a number of reasonable precautions that individuals and businesses can take to provide some degree of individual protection and help detect suspected terrorists.
