WHAT IS TERRORISM?
Terrorism is the use of force or violence against persons or property in violation of the
criminal laws of the Unites States for purposes of intimidation, coercion, or ransom.
Terrorists often use threats to create fear among the public, to try to convince citizens that
their government is powerless in preventing terrorism, and to get immediate publicity for
TYPES OF TERRORISM
All acts of terrorism are crimes. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) categorizes
terrorism in the United States as one of two types - domestic terrorism or international
Domestic Terrorism involves groups or individuals whose terrorist activities are
directed at elements of our government or population without foreign direction.
International Terrorism involves groups or individuals whose terrorist activities are
foreign based and/or directed by countries or groups outside the United States or whose
activities transcend national boundaries.
NATURE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF TERRORISM
Terrorists look for visible targets where they can avoid detection before or after an attack
such as international airports, large cities, major international events, resorts, and highprofile
landmarks. Terrorist actions are well planned and are usually executed without
any deviation to their plan. It is also theatrical, creating specific reactions from the
audience (population). The terrorist will always stage and even rehearse their plan at
least three times before perpetrating their actual attack. Terrorism is directed against
governments, businesses, communities, and individuals. It may be perpetrated for the
retaliation of perceived injustices to cause confrontation between parties; improve a
bargaining position; or to demonstrate strength, commitment, and resolve.
Prior to a number of terrorist attacks, the perpetrators have been observed by security
personnel and even recorded on surveillance cameras. However, since terrorists didn't
the facility or building, in each case security chose to ignore them.
