U of A center looks for terrorism pattern

(October 7, 2003) — (Fayetteville-AP) -- The Terrorism Research Center at the University of Arkansas is trying to find patterns that could help identify possible terrorists. Center director Brent Smith says that he plans to study what kinds of crimes terrorists tend to commit while preparing for terrorism. Smith says his focus is to see if a pattern emerges. The project will produce 75 case studies that Smith will then hand over to federal prosecutors and police officers. It is to be completed in September 2005.
