In the recent past, the United States have come under increased threat of terrorism.  Since September 11 2001 when terrorist first struck the World Trade Center, United States has put in place different strategies aimed at improving homeland security, especially with the formation of the department of homeland security. However, the country is still under threats from different kinds of terrorism.  The public still remains a target for terrorist because they aim at instilling fear.  One of the areas that the United States remain susceptible to terrorist attack is the transportation system.  Like in 2011, there are different loopholes that still remain in the transportation system that can be exploited by terrorist. This security strategy will therefore outline a comprehensive plan aimed at mitigating threats of terrorism to the security system.
