THE THREAT OF FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM
Your assignments will be based on scenarios that have directly impacted Homeland Security. The subject for this 2 SLP assignment will center around the “Lone Wolf” domestic terrorist.
The Orlando PULSE nightclub massacre in 2016 and the Las Vegas shooting in 2017, for example, were conducted by a lone wolf.
An unknown person has undertaken an ongoing series of “lone wolf” shootings and IED attacks in Bronx, NY, targeting federal law enforcement offices and their personnel.
As a newly hired Intelligence Analyst with the Department of Homeland Security, your supervisor asked you to develop a detailed account pertaining to the ongoing “lone wolf” attacks in the Bronx. Your introduction in your notebook will cover the following:
Define a “lone wolf” terrorist and describe which Federal agencies would play a role in locating and apprehending these attackers.
Explain why “lone wolf” terrorists (domestic and foreign) represent a unique challenge to DHS and to the U.S. Government, both in terms of detection and apprehension, as well as why “lone wolves” are potentially able to inflict significant harm within the United States.
