The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Penetrating Terrorist Cells

For John, BLUFThe fight against Daesh will be a long, hard, slog.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The Soufan Group we have "The Family Ties of Terror".  The head of The Soufan Group is former FHI Agent Ali Soufan.
Bottom Line Up Front:
  • Several members of the terrorist cell that attacked Paris on November 13 were related to each other—the latest in a long line of family terror ties
  • Small terror cells made up of mostly relatives or close friends are the greatest challenge for intelligence services seeking to infiltrate with human sources
  • Smaller and more family-based cells provide an intense feedback loop of radicalization and reinforcement, resulting in plots of intense commitment, as well as intense disagreements when they occur
  • The younger the relative in a terror cell, the more likely he or she is under the sway of an older sibling, adding a level of familial obligation and fear to the radicalization process.
One can see how inflation of such small cells can be very hard for intelligence services.
