  1. American Blowback
    Cop-on-Cop Crime in LA

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2013
  2. As Police Killings of Minorities Mount, Attacks on Police Like the One in Dallas, While Awful, Are Also Sadly Predictable
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    The tragedy that is America has deepened with the news of a sniper attack targeting police in Dallas during a protest march and rally against police brutality and killings of black people in that city. The murder of anybody, whether it's a police officer or someone who is simply stopped by a cop for a minor traffic violation and is then shot because a jumpy officer mistakes reaching for a wallet to be reaching for a gun, as happened just two days ago in Minnesota, is a dreadful thing.
  3. Canada, At War For 13 Years, Shocked That 'A Terrorist' Attacked Its Soldiers

    Published: 2014

Over the next 26, the U.S. backed the unpopular, authoritarian shah and his secret police; in exchange, it reaped a share of Iran’s oil wealth. The blowback was almost inevitable, as this new and revealing history of the coup and its consequences shows.
  5. U.S. Military Operations Are Biggest Motivation for Homegrown Terrorists, FBI Study Finds
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    A secret FBI study found that anger over U.S. military operations abroad was the most commonly cited motivation for individuals involved in cases of "homegrown" terrorism. The report also identified no coherent pattern to "radicalization," concluding that it remained near impossible to predict future violent acts.
