Abstract:     
In response to the continued terror threat facing the United States, counterterrorism measures must be developed that are both effective and meet accountability standards. This paper approaches the issue by: (1) proposing a matrix facilitating the measurement of the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of a particular counterterrorism measure; and (2) proposing an accountability matrix for measuring the effectiveness of particular measures. The paper's central focus is developing criteria for measuring effective counterterrorism - premised on the rule of law, policy considerations, and the limits of power. If utilized, these criteria will provide empirical evidence that particular counterterrorism measures in actuality contribute to effective and legal counterterrorism.
