FBI Agent Michael German Taught Hollywood How to Get Counterterrorism Right | L.A. Weekly: "“One of the things I learned from doing this work is that terrorism isn’t nihilistic violence,” he says. “What terrorists hope to do is provoke the government to take actions that are against its interests.

Once that happens, the terrorists can build a legitimate grievance with the government and expand the divisions that already exist.”
