3) Using Annual Editions article “Low-Tech Terrorism” by Bruce Hoffman, summarize some of the low tech explosive devices that have been constructed and their level of destructiveness. Unfortunately whoever wrote the learning outcomes for the text did not read the article so they don’t match the contents since this article has nothing to do with cyberterrorism so please ignore the Learning Outcomes and the critical thinking questions at the end of the article. Instead this article focuses on the damage that can be done with even low tech explosive devices, turning airplanes into missiles as in September 11, 2001, the use of biological weapons (anthrax, sarin nerve gas) as well as home-made style bombs. Provide an overview of the variety of homemade weapons created with a specific focus on the types of low tech IEDs that have been put together by terrorists and insurgents alike as stated in the text. Despite the fact that these are home-made IEDs, how effective are they especially when mixed with chemicals. Also, please describe how these IEDS continue to affect this continuing war on terrorism and also give us some insight about our enemy. 4-5 paragraphs
