Today’s Evolving Terrorism Threat Landscape

On November 9, 2021, Ali Soufan, Founder of The Soufan Center, participated in an event ‘Today’s Evolving Terrorism Threat Landscape’ hosted by the FBI Washington D.C. Citizens Academy Alumni Association. The discussion touched upon Mr. Soufan’s former career in the FBI where he investigated and supervised complex international terrorism cases, including the East Africa embassy bombings, the attack on the USS Cole, and the events surrounding 9/11. As the United States reflects on 20 years since the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, the discussion also reflected on domestic and international counter-terrorism challenges over the past decades, to include the enduring threat from Salafi-jihadist inspired terrorism to the rise of violent far-right extremism.
