Abstract

O’Neill associate professor Jeff Gruenewald was the co-principal investigator on research for the National Institute of Justice that specifically examined the nature of the terrorist attack planning process, including group size, length of planning process, and level of incident sophistication, and how such factors are associated with success or failure of terrorist incidents. Data used in the analysis were compiled from the American Terrorism Study, a relational database that at the time of the analysis included 1,360 federal “terrorism-related” court cases involving 1,922 indictees.
