Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why: The 1999 Government Report on Profiling Terrorists
Lyons Press, Jul 1, 2002 - History - 241 pages
Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why is the shocking landmark 1999 government study that predicted who would terrorize the United States and how they would do it. In an attempt to profile what members of society join terrorist groups and commit acts of violence, the report drew on readily available, non-classified "open source" material that profiled current and past terrorist cults and their leaders. The study also shows what means terrorists have used thus far to bring their vision into reality, means ranging from kidnapping, hijacking, and sabotage, to the use of nerve gas. The evidence clearly pointed to the escalation of hostilities, and the report even speculated that Al-Qaeda could use suicide bombers to crash-land aircraft into government buildings and other landmarks. This government study, using readily available materials, predicted the events that changed our lives forever. Here, for the first time, the public can read what the government knew before September 11,2001: Who wants to harm the United States, why they hate us, and how they will strike us.
