The U.S. State Department has delivered to Congress the annual Country Reports on Terrorism. For 2007 the report surveys developments in countries in which acts of terrorism occurred, countries that are state sponsors of terrorism, and countries determined by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be of particular interest in the global war on terror.

In general, the report finds al Qaeda and its associated network continued to be the number one greatest terrorist threat to the United States and its allies. It also details how the Taliban and other insurgent groups and criminal gangs are threatening the governments of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The report also provides an update on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism which includes Cuba, Sudan, Syria, Iran, and North Korea.
