Sageman Warns of Web Wannabes

"The world’s most dangerous jihadists no longer answer to al-Qaeda. The
terrorists we should fear most are self-recruited wannabes who find
purpose in terror and comrades on the Web. This new generation is even
more frightening and unpredictable than its predecessors, but its
evolution just may reveal the key to its demise," writes Leaderless Jihad: Terror Networks in the Twenty-First Century author Marc Sageman in the Issues & Ideas section of the July 8 National Post. In Sageman’s piece for the Canadian paper, he discusses how the internet serves as an echo chamber for Muslim outrage in Europe, Canada, and the United States.

Elsewhere online, talk of Sageman’s controversial position on al-Qaeda’s strength appeared on the Homeland Security Today website.
