While the long-term success of the counterterrorism campaign will depend on concerted cooperation from European states, a key question is the extent to which that cooperation should be pursued through European multilateral institutions. The author argues that the United States should pursue military and intelligence cooperation on a bilateral basis, and it should increasingly pursue financial and law enforcement cooperation on a multilateral basis. Multilateral cooperation with a strengthened EU would enhance the ability of states on both sides of the Atlantic to prevent terrorism and prosecute those involved in terrorist activities.
