Text Preview 2 Moderately Unfamiliar Assumptions About Al-Qaeda

Introduction to Homeland Security
Research Paper
August 17, 2013
Mr. William R Di Lorio

2 moderately unfamiliar assumptions about al-Qaeda

From intellectuals to policy-makers alike. All of the extraordinary output on the subject of al-Qaeda, has recently led to a number of far-reaching theories about the group which remain startlingly unexplored. The two assumptions, this paper examines and reveals each one's foundational role in assertions as well as debates about al-Qaeda, despite the relatively unexplored status of each. These 2 assumptions relate to: (1) the role of the internet in actual terrorist activity; and (2) the association between combating a global “Al-Qaeda and combating al-Qaeda in Iraq”.

Mueller's ever-burgeoning bookish literature which anyone familiar with terrorism would recognize, quickly titled the 'Six rather unusual propositions about terrorism'. Is what my research paper plays off. In 2005, Mueller's astute and incisive piece brought to the forefront six unfamiliar assumptions about terrorism that should already have spawned discussion among intellectuals in the field, but had not, until his work provocatively presented those propositions. In a similar stratum, this research paper focuses on 2 rather unfamiliar theories about al-Qaeda which I think demand far greater research, attention, and debate than Mueller's had received thus far. It is my intention to focus these reflections on some insufficiently explored theories regarding particularly al-Qaeda. However, most of the theories relate more broadly to terrorism concerning issues in general. What is meant here by the phrase ' moderately unfamiliar assumptions '? By ' unfamiliar ', this dialogue proposes that the thinking explored here prowl beneath many of the affirmations made by intellectuals on al-Qaeda. This coupled with getting beneath many of the affirmations frequently put forward by political types (politicians and policy-makers). Humbly, this is not to imply that these particular assumptions are shared universally: in fact, many of the theories are really opposing pairs of, dichotomous conjectures, with those partisan to one side of a certain debate embracing that conjecture while their opponents reciprocate the other. Centrally the point is that these outright and crucial foundational notions concerning al-Qaeda, are for many assertions made by those addressing key issues and debating in the field.

By ' assumptions ', these reflections suggest that Mueller's six assumptions have been given inadequate attention in terrorism scholarship and dialogue. Not saying that these assumptions have been converted into the bases for other claims because they have been considered so obviously true and were taken for granted, or so indispensable research as to be automatically accepted for any scholarship whatsoever to continue. Contrarily, these assumptions engross some complex, consequential matters. This being said too often they have been accepted and neglected in favor of important research in other directions. What I hope to achieve with this paper is to draw attention to them, and in doing so, persuade their investigation through due diligent research and in depth analyses. Far too often these assumptions have not been totally ignored, but they have been left moderately unexplored. In addition, they also have been taken as the basis for other claims and assertions. For this reason, this research paper investigates 2 of the six assumptions, in an attempt to reveal what is habitually taken for granted in many conversations about al-Qaeda. This coupled with the consequent penalty for assertions made about counterterrorism and terrorism. In addition, proposals for how each assumption could be explored more completely and systematically are offered. This research paper then concludes by making a note of social science, and that it may... Show More
