spies, and Intel when it comes to other Countries activates and elections of any kind (. They play roles in safeguarding top secret information and the war on terrorism and troop movements. If you take a look at the leaked information from the Hillary Clinton admin administration, you canrealize firsthand just how much damage can truly be caused and how leaking information can be very damaging to this Country. So much so, it caused innocent people to lose their lives on that tragic day. They have also investigated illegal transactions that have been placed to fund other Countries in their terrorist attacks. All of these things have all had a major impact on our Countryand the Americans that reside here.
THE FBI AND RESPONDING TO TERRORISM 4Motivation of Terrorist Group Activities against AmericansSeveral people hear about terrorist attacks and the hate and rage and damage they caused,and most people sit back and ask “Why” or even “How”? No one really truly knows what causes the rage inside of these animals in the moments of thinking it is okay to another person’s life. They are fueled by hate, by religious beliefs, by political views. In the mind of a terrorist they think if you are not like them and one of them, they are doing everyone the honor by eliminating those nonbelievers. If you step back and look at the hate groups, they are driven by their own beliefs as well. Extremists like the “KKK” or the “Black Panthers” they are driven off of race and if you aren’t like them, don’t stand for what they believe in, then you will have consequences to pay. When it comes to the groups that full heartily hate the American People, these are your international terrorists. Your groups like Al-Qaeda. The ones that are studying our ways daily, that are using the internet to recruit, that are sending out videos of violence in high hopes of instilling fear on others. These are the ones that are getting into the minds of the “Lone Wolfes” all while sitting behind a computer and barking out orders of mass destruction. To me, these are by far the scariest terrorist around, they are the unknown threat. Given appropriate social conditions, decent, ordinary people can be led to do extraordinarily cruel things.” Social scientists argue about the nature and impact of the “social conditions” in question, but few would question the essential point that violence, however personalized or idiosyncratic its expression, is primarily rooted in historical structures or social relationships, not individuals, still less their “pathological” mindsets.

THE FBI AND RESPONDING TO TERRORISM 5Strengths and Weaknesses of American Homeland Security's CounterterrorismPoliciesIf you collectively as a whole start to breakdown agencies and their security procedures, you would be able to pick out strengths and weakness amongst all groups involved. The weaknesses are unfortunately what is continuously tested. When these procedures are tested, it usually doesn’t end with a positive outcome. It unfortunate that people have to almost be tested in order to understand what is being targeted and ways to prevent these attacks from ever occurring again.
