Terrorism poses a domestic and international threat. For many, the term “terrorism” evokes images of Usama bin Laden, airplanes crashing into buildings, and Islamic extremist training camps. However, terrorism is defined by the targeted violence attack, the subsequent media coverage and attention, and the effect it has on public behavior and influencing political, religious, ideaological, and personal agendas. Acts of terrorism can be conducted by individuals or small groups, as well as by established organizations, They can include assassinations, mass shootings, bombings, and use of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear devices.
