Top 3 Challenges for Potential FBI Agents

Tell your friends and family that you want to be an FBI agent, and they’ll remind you of a few things you’ve probably heard before: that it’s extremely tough to get into, the FBI will do an incredibly thorough background check on you going all the way back to grade school, and that they’re looking for people who fit ‘the’ profile. Let’s shed a little insight.

Is the U.S. Prepared for a Bioterrorism Threat?

In my last blog, I wrote about how bioterrorism was recognized as one of the top five threats to the United States in the immediate future. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) describes bioterror threat as “deliberate release of viruses, bacteria or other agents used to cause illness or death.” The CDC’s site provides a good primer not just on bioterrorism, but on a range of biological agents and related concerns, and what we can do to prepare. It’s clear that biosecurity presents a unique challenge in facing both terrorist or human-generated bio-threats, and natural or unintentional public health emergencies.

Chechnya – Could a Nation’s Conflict Inspire Terrorism?

On April 15, two terrorists planted bombs that killed three people and injured 170 during the Boston Marathon. A subsequent rapid investigation led to two suspects, the brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnayev. Tamerlan Tsarnayev (26) was killed in a shootout with police on April 18, and his brother Dzhokhar (19), after an intensive region-wide manhunt, was finally arrested on April 20. Both brothers are also suspected of shooting and killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) campus police officer on April 18.

Colorado’s Preparedness in Homeland Safety

The FBI has several unexploded devices in hand, and my bet is they will have a pretty good line on the origin of the attack very soon. Bomb makers have unique styles, almost like fingerprints. In fact, the FBI may find finger prints inside. But we don’t have that evidence right now.
