Summary/Abstract: The Al Qaeda attack on the United States, the most dramatic and spectacular manifestation of radicalism that changed the Americans’ attitude to security, was also a significant turning point in American foreign policy. War on terror was declared and its strategy, the so-called Bush doctrine, was defined, throwing the international scene into turmoil. America’s determination in fighting terrorism led it to resort to methods contrary to the standards of a democratic state. In consequence the USA’s position in the world became weaker, hampering international cooperation in effective dealing with threats to security.
