Exploring terrorist tactics: The Coming Swarm
Editor's note: Two weeks after the attacks in Mumbai—in which fewer than a dozen militants held at bay some 800 police for 60 hours—PoliceOne presented a special report consisting of articles from P1 SWAT Columnists Lt. Dan Marcou and Sgt. Glenn French, as well as analysis and opinion from Stratfor and P1 members. On Friday, February 20th, 2009, we’re introducing a three part series from Dick Fairburn on the subject (part one is called “Countering terrorist teams: A different threat requires a different response”). Be sure to watch for that at the end of the week.
