Henderson On Krueger On Terrorism

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Saturday, September 15, 2018

How serious a problem is terrorism? Krueger’s table of relative risks shows that the answer is “not very.” An American’s lifetime risk of being killed by a terrorist, calculates Krueger, is 1:69,000. Compare that to the 1:88 chance of being killed in a motor vehicle accident and the even more serious 1:7 risk of dying from cancer and 1:4 risk of dying from heart disease.

The 9/11 Attacks Were No Pearl Harbor

by Bruce Thorntonvia FrontPage Mag.com
Friday, September 14, 2018

Comparing the jihadist attacks on September 11, 2001 to the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor has become a staple of commentary on the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. Google this topic and nearly half a million links will pop up; google “lesson plans” and you’ll get nearly five million hits. In the catalogue of historical analogies, the comparison of 9/11 to 12/7 is perhaps the most popular outside the historians’ guild.

Security Vetting In An Age Of Terror

by Jamil Jaffervia Real Clear Defense
Monday, July 23, 2018

We live in an age of terror. While the attacks of September 11, 2001, are a faint memory for many and sometimes not even that, children born after the attacks becoming adults this year after a decade and a half has passed. And yet the reality remains that those killed over 3,000 Americans on our soil in less than two hours would strike us again if the opportunity presented itself.

by Russell A. Bermanvia The Hill
Thursday, May 31, 2018

The attack in Liege, Belgium on Tuesday is being treated as an act of terrorism and rightly so. It began when the suspect, now identified as Belgian Benjamin Herman, assaulted two female police officers from behind, stabbing them multiple times and, after seizing their weapons, killing them both in cold blood. Such is terrorist bravery.
