Blogger Asks For New Ways For Terrorists To Attack

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 6 years ago

United States 1

An anonymous reader writes "New York Times blogger Steven D. Levitt has raised a few eyebrows with his blog post, 'If You Were a Terrorist, How Would You Attack?'. He asks, 'what I would do to maximize terror if I were a terrorist with limited resources'. Levitt's terrorist plan is based on the Washington D.C. sniper attacks of 2002. He also invites readers to come up with better ideas: 'I presume that a lot more folks who oppose and fight terror read this blog than actual terrorists. So by getting these ideas out in the open, it gives terror fighters a chance to consider and plan for these scenarios before they occur.' Others argue that this is simply giving terrorists dangerous new ideas."

Bruce Schneier has been doing this sort of thing for ages. Except his is a movie idea.
