Governments spend billions to protect against terrorism. Might it help to understand what al Qaeda would achieve with each specific attack?

This book analyzes past attacks, post hoc justifications, and expert opinion to weigh each hypothesis.

This book analyzes past attacks, post hoc justifications, and expert opinion to weigh each hypothesis.
