A new study from the Chicago Project on Security and Threats (CPOST) at the University of Chicago and the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Counter-Terrorism Policy Center finds striking patterns among individuals in the United States considered ISIS supporters, including a large number are U.S.-born citizens and engaged in society.
The Christian Science Monitor interviews CPOST director Dr. Robert Pape who says that "This latest ban 'has the hallmarks of our airport security system responding to new information about an immediate threat.'"
Dr. Robert Pape explained that ISIS is creating a new role for themselves, not as the director but rather as the producers of terror who ensure that operations are a success by attracting the right cast.
