Edge of network connections and the undie bomber
Was just reading this piece about the Undie bomber and this little snippet from page two stood out.
Still, while he was seen to be “reaching out” to known extremists and appearing on “the periphery of other investigations” into radical suspects there, he was not considered a terrorist threat himself, according to a British counterintelligence official.
Edge of network connections–again. Of course the problem is always resourcing. There is never enough time to track down everything. But still, it seems to me that we see this over and over and over again. Once the dissertation goes in for examination I’m going to work up my little theory on edge of network connections into something substantive. Ok so it’s not a theory in the proper sense of the word, but I’ll be able to build a fairly robust analytical framework around it post thesis.For those of you new to the blog and wondering what the hell I am talking about you can find a little explanation here, and then a bit of background on it here. As I said I wanted to try to work this up, using a few cases and OS data, but it won’t be until post thesis now.
