Terrorists, Counter-Terror “Experts”, and Governments Are All Motivated to Cover Up the Facts

Experts say that terrorists are strongly motivated – for two reasons – to exaggerate their abilities to inflict damage.

(1) Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims”. So terrorists exaggerate their destructive abilities in order to increase intimidation and push their aims.

(2) The more damage people believe that a terrorist group has inflicted, the more donations and funding they will receive from radical extremists. Specifically, radicals are more likely to fund terrorists who are “effective” in inflicting damage than those who can’t pull off murder and mayhem.

And the government has also exaggerated the threat of terrorism for political purposes  (literally seeing a terrorist under every bush).   For example, FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, a top constitutional and military law expert, Time magazine, the Washington Post and others have all said that U.S. government officials “were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power”.
