"Jihadisten Fritz: En analyse av terrorkomplottet som ble avslørt i Tyskland i september 2007"
Foredrag for Konsortium for forskning på terrorisme og internasjonal kriminalitet, NUPI, 31. oktober 2007, av Petter Nesser.
I foredraget redegjør Nesser for et terrorkomplott som ble avslørt i Tyskland i september 2007. Han beskriver hovedelementene i komplottet og antiterror operasjonen, og går igjennom hva som foreløpig er kjent om de mistenkte terroristene og motivasjonene bak angrepsforsøket. Nesser konkluderer med at terrorcellen hadde noe høyere grad av organisering, og en sterkere internasjonal dimensjon enn tilsvarende celler avslørt i Europa de siste par årene.

"Terrorism - Past, Present and Future"
In September 2000, FFI held a one-day seminar entitled "Terrorism - Past, Present and Future" at Oslo Military Society, on the occasion of a visit to the FFI by Dr Bruce Hoffman (Rand Corporation), a world-leading specialist on international terrorism, and author of the seminal book Inside Terrorism (Columbia Univ. Press, 1998). In his lecture, Hoffman stresses the duality of today’s terrorism - it reflects both enormous change and remarkable continuity. The new breed of terrorists may seem more fanatical or irrational than before, but they still seem to be operationally conservative. Future terrorist use of CBRN weapons to achieve mass casualties or destruction may be far less certain than is now commonly assumed.
