Security Challenges of a New, Permanent Fixture
Although lone wolf terrorism, as perpetrated by individuals in Oklahoma City, Fort Hood, and Oslo, has become a permanent fixture of security concerns nationally and globally, the phenomenon is not very well understood. A panel of experts discussed the nature of the growing threat and what modern societies can do to reduce the risks.
Michael S. Swetnam, CEO and Chairman, Potomac Institute for Policy Studies offered opening remarks, and the panel was moderated by Prof. Yonah Alexander, Director, Inter-University Center for Terrorism Studies, and Senior Fellow, Potomac Institute for Policy Studies.
Panelist speakers included:
- Marion (Spike) Bowman, Former Deputy General Counsel (National Security), Federal Bureau of Investigation; Distinguished Fellow, Center for National Security Law, University of Virginia School of Law
- Prof. Amit Kumar, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University
- Kyle B. Olson, President, The Olson Group, Ltd.
Prof. Don Wallace Jr., Chairman, International Law Institute, provided closing remarks.
