On terrorists’ shift in tactics since 9/11

Christopher Meserole

Chris Meserole, a fellow in the Center for Middle East Policy reflects on the September 11 terrorist attacks sixteen years ago and discusses the changing tactics of terrorists since then. Meserole explains how the Islamic State has effectively “repackaged jihadism for the smartphone era” while also shifting to low-tech methods. He offers recommendations on how to combat this new era of terrorism.
