Comparing Terrorist Acts
Review the 9/11 Commission Report.
Research a recent terrorist event involving a Homegrown Violent Extremist (HVE).
Develop a 20- to 25-slide presentation comparing the 9/11 attacks to the recent HVE incident you chose with speaker notes.
Include the following in your analysis:
- The participants, planning, objectives, execution, and impact of the event.
- The vulnerabilities exploited during the event.
- The human and economic effects of the event.
- Post-incident countermeasures used to reduce vulnerability to a similar incident.
Consider public and private security awareness, causal factors, interagency cooperation or lack thereof, and incident response.
Conclude the presentation with one or more slides that selects and justifies which terrorism threat poses the greatest risk (current HVE terrorists or large terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, etc.).
