I have republished an umpteenth number of times over the past three years, the excellent report by Lori Lowenthal Marcus on the ”lone wolf” strategy:
The global jihadi masterminds endorse a new style of operation, particularly for those in the non-Muslim world arena: small cells, few connections, low cost munitions and high density, high profile crowds. “It’s the al Suri Strategy come home to roost.”
There is a typical knee-jerk reaction by those who believe that by using the term ”lone-wolf”, you are somehow diminishing the phenomenon of world wide jihad, and the connection between these Islamic terrorists (pious muslim jihadis) with Islam and high profile terror orgs.
It couldn’t be further from the truth, I challenge anyone who holds a dissenting view or at least a modicum of scepticism to read the Lori Marcus piece, and decide for yourself. It speaks of a tactic long proposed by AQ’s no2 Abu Musab al-Suri in keeping the various intel orgs in the West off balance.
NOTE: This is something that Rita Katz over at the SITE organization should already know about but obviously doesn’t, or instead, stubbornly sticking to (failed) mainstream policy wonk views.
