ThreatsWatch.Org was established in 2005 as the means to disseminate information on national security threats in an accessible, interactive and contextually aware form. In 2007 ThreatsWatch.Org became the web-based publication of the Center for Threat Awareness (CTA), a 501(c)3 tax-exempt corporation whose mission is to increase public awareness of threats to national security and liberty.

ThreatsWatch.Org content is organized as follows:


A daily round-up of news and events. Our goal is to extract and compile the essential developments around the globe while eliminating the excess noise traditional news aggregation services create.


Our Blog where TW contributors discuss the events of the day in a less formal manner and encourage interaction between each other and our readers. This section will also occasionally give updates on the site, its features and CTA-related news.


Issues in Depth. This is our primary means for providing detailed analysis and/or review of events ranging from existing conflicts to political and cultural developments that impact international affairs and national security. These pieces are focused on exposing the prime motivations, central actions and ramifications of events in a manner readily accessible to the broader public.


Our Opinions and Editorials offer a more in-depth and personal view of an issue and how it impacts international relations or national security. This less frequent offering is primarily a means for ThreatsWatch contributors to relay their positions on issues and to join the national and international debate.

Global Crisis Watch

Global Crisis Watch is an independent weekly current affairs and news podcast focusing on global terrorism, the War of Ideas, and indigenous pro-democracy efforts around the world. Co-hosted by Nick Grace and Sasha Eckstein in Washington, DC, the show features interviews with brave activists and journalists focusing on terrorism, democratization, and indigenous efforts to promote freedom and liberty.


Rich Media Content to enable additional context, background, and imagery to deliver a more complete understanding of often complex issues. Our goal of painting the picture in a form that clarifies the situation was exemplified by the al-Qaeda Attacks: 1998 - 2005 presentation first published in July of 2005.

Additionally all TW developed content will be archived by month of publication and by category. The categoy archives are combined to create the TW resource library and will be augmented by external resources, links to data sources and to other significant news outlets and blogs.
