All over the world today there are thousands of organized terrorist organizations. The organization that I have chosen to base my paper upon is Al queda. Al Queda was responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York City. This terrorist group is continuously growing at a fairly constant rate. This is mainly due to the organizations ability to use technology.
Over the years Al Queda has been able to recruit individuals who have advanced skills in computer technology. This has allowed the organization to provide sophisticated resources such as articles, videos and other types of multimedia (Gannon 2015). These forms of media are used to recruit supporters from all over the world. Some common countries include the United States, Britain, and other Western countries. The new “techies” Al Queda has brought in is very skilled at evading the vast array of detection techniques that the United States has put in place.
Al Queda intelligence used the internet for many other terrorist activity. Some of these activities included coordinating terrorist activities through discussion sites. All of which would later include an up to date list of individuals would participated in the movement. They used this to form a way in which they could reach out to younger populations in other countries. In doing so it required
There are many known members of this organization a few of which includes Mustafa Hamid who is an advisor for Al Queda and also taught at their training camp. Khalid Al-habib who used to oversee Al-Qaeda operations in Afghanistan, and lastly Saif Al-adele who is a high-ranking member of Al Queda, and to exploit information of targeting countries(Al-Qaeda's 2015) .
After 9/11 took place, the insurance companies involved here in the United States took steps to have a lawsuit place upon Al Queda. This was mainly due to the number of insurance claims these businesses were facing. According to CBS news, they were presented with a 9.3 billion dollar law suit that they refused to acknowledge and went into default where they now owe three times that amount.
