NEVAR FORGET an important date ever again, with our handy-dandy calendar! Operators are standing by and listening to your call. Er, I mean waiting for your call. Yeah, that's the ticket.

"The National Counterterrorism Center is pleased to present the 2009 edition of the Counterterrorism (CT) Calendar. This edition... contains useful information across a wide range of terrorism-related topics: terrorist groups, wanted terrorists, and technical pages on various threat-related issues" such as recognizing the effects of an anthrax infection. "The Calendar marks dates according to the Gregorian and Islamic calendars, and contains significant dates in terrorism history, as well as dates that terrorists may believe are important when planning 'commemoration-style' attacks." Conveniently available in both online multimedia format (deep link to the timeline itself), as well as a printable version (63 MB PDF).

Apparently the only terrorists in the world are Muslims and Timothy McVeigh.

I like the logos page. Apparently, you can't be a real terrorist group without a logo.

I like how the misspell "Colombian" in the logos list.

Me, I just love that there's a "Kids Page." Oh Beaker the Eagle: won't you keep us safe from premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience?

I know I could just print it out from that PDF, but I want a physical version of this. It even beats the North Korean 2009 wall calendar I've been thinking of getting.
