Question description

QUESTION 1

  1. Which of the following has always been an attraction of terrorism?

    Civilians and noncombatants are ‘hard targets’ that are easier to attack than conventional state security forces.

    Critical thinking in liberal democracies constitutes a permissive environment for spreading fear among the population.

    Oppressive regimes are more likely to overreact against terrorists and force the people to turn against the government.

    State security forces are ill equipped to mitigate the psychological effects of terrorism, making it a useful tool for weaker parties.

QUESTION 2

  1. What is the difference between US government statistics on terrorism before and after 2004?

    In 2003, analysis of the statistics raised concerns that political interests had manipulated the data to hide counterterrorism successes.

    In 2004, the National Counter Terrorism Center took over production of the statistics using a new method for collection and analysis.

    Prior to 2004, the US State Department conducted the analysis based on data collected by the Department of Homeland Security.

    Statistics before and after 2004 are reported by different agencies, but the differences still allow them to be compared.
