Jordan's Terrorism Research Reveals Loose Leader Ties

External News Details

Jenna Jordan, assistant professor in The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, "and Aaron Mannes, of the University of Maryland, have separately reviewed dozens of past campaigns by governments to destroy terrorist organizations and found that culling leaders works in some instances—especially when terrorist groups are young and small—but not in others," reports The New Yorker. "Besides, as the Boston Marathon bombing reminded us, terrorist plots can be hatched and carried out by individuals acting independently of any chain of command."
