"The Soviet Union is being depicted at a conference on international terrorism as the patron, armorer and strategist for most of the extremists who have left a trail of blood across the Western world. This theme was introduced by U.S. Senator Henry M. Jackson and developed in detail by the meeting's star participants, all prominent in the research and analysis of terrorist operations."
—Chicago Sun Times
"Most of the participants would have agreed that the first political task at hand on the issue of terrorism is to cut the idea of terrorism loose from the connection it now has in many Western liberal minds with notions of national liberation and social justice; only then can terror be viewed plainly as a crime and a threat. But their second task is to establish another kind of connection, and make people see terrorism not as just a random occurrence but as a tactic in the Soviet war against the West."
