The FBI Construct Structures of Terrorist Groups
A distinct but related group, the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), claimed responsibility for the arson fires set at a Vail (Colorado) ski resort in October 1998, which caused 12 million dollars in damages. This incident remains under investigation. Seven terrorist incidents occurring in the United States during 2000 have been attributed to either ALF or ELF. Several additional acts committed during 2001 are currently being reviewed for possible designation as terrorist incidents.
Elmore, (2006) pointed out that the terrorist attacks of the 11 September 2001 led to a revolution between the federal, state and local homeland security as well as law enforcement and intelligence organizations. The report further mentioned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created at the federal level. This eliminated the footraces between the intelligence and law enforcement. Such critical reforms had a significant impact on the state government and even in the local governments. The designated focal points connecting the federal intelligence community to the state and local intelligence collectors are the state and local fusion centers. However, to further strengthen security, it is necessary that the federal government ramps up its corporations with the interested partners including private corporations, state, and local governments.Right-wing terrorists are groups who hold the principle of racial supremacy, antigovernment and antiregulatory beliefs. Such groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Boko Haram, Aryan Nation, and so forth. Gage (2011) pointed out that throughout the twentieth century, right-wing terrorism has more than counterbalanced the violence of the left wing. However, since the right-wing terrorism is reactionary violence and being political, they play a very minor role in the literature on terrorism. Over the years, the guerrilla ideology has been employed in terrorist activities. This is usually politically motivated. The guerilla ideology terrorism involves irregular soldiers and often have a political objective such as overthrowing of a government. Moreover, the guerrillas oftentimes operate in units with the aim of harassing and carrying out sabotage.
