Canadian Intelligence Eh! Episode 138 – How to monitor multiple terrorist groups at once

Terrorism threats ebb and flow. Different movements – and different individuals – rise to cause a lot of havoc and sometimes (eventually? Great question!) go away. But what if they don’t?

Borealis re-engages legendary US terrorism scholar Bruce Hoffman on these and other issues.
