Annual Threat Report 2013


Praemon is proud to release this, the first Annual Threat Report. In addition to each student contributor’s regular pieces on varying national security issues, the Annual Threat Report (ATR) is a large-scale, collaborative analysis project.

The purpose of the ATR is to identify the handful of threats that we, the members of Praemon, consider to be the most pressing tangible threats to U.S. national security over the next two years, and offer analysis and forecasting regarding those issues. As always, we strive to answer three basic analytical questions: What is truly happening? What do we anticipate will soon happen? and How should the U.S. respond to best serve national security?
