Taking the Mystery Out of Terrorist Planning

leave a comment »

For those interested in detailed, substantive reading on terrorism, I heartily recommend Stratfor‘s recent article, Detection Points in the Terrorist Attack Cycle.  This article makes the important point that while terrorism is a serious threat, it can be understood and countered like any other security threat.

No matter how fanatic a group’s operatives may seem, terrorists can’t create devastating attacks without careful, down-to-earth planning.  These kinds of attacks require communication, funding, supplies, and meticulous preparation, often over months and years.  All these activities expose the terrorists to possible discovery by security agencies.

Read the article to see why and how.  We welcome your comments!
