The Rand Corporation has been looking at the structure and activities of terrorist organizations since the early 1970s. Their work has examined these organizations, their motivations, recruitment and training methods, and why some are ultimately more successful than others. RAND has also done extensive examinations into al Qaeda, and with the recent death of Osama Bin Laden, numerous media groups and policy analysts have called on their experts to give testimony on related matters. This particular site brings together selected research, testimony, and commentary on these subjects and visitors are encouraged to scroll through the offerings here. Visitors can look at pieces that include "Could Bin Laden's Death Prompt a Cyber Attack?" and "Deradicalization Process Is Essential Part of Fighting Terrorism". Also, visitors should check out their "Researcher Spotlight" on the right-hand side of the page, their newsletters, and RSS feed.
