Tags: terrorism

Defined as “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience” according to US law. It is used to describe incidents “facilitated” by agents provocateurs from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. It is an increasingly common aspect of commercially-controlled media reports in the 21st century, particularly since 9/11. The stereotypical image, that of a Muslim suicide bomber (often a patsy or radical known and provoked by the dark-side of intelligence agencies), is exploited to try to scare lawmakers into passing Draconian and vaguely worded laws, and to scare the public into acquiescing. These laws often related to mass surveillance or otherwise infringe on civil liberties.1
