The Hunt: ‘Why Terrorist Groups Form International Alliances’

WASHINGTON — The terrorist environment is changing rapidly, just like the business world.

Tricia Bacon, an assistant professor at American University, has written a book on the topic called “Why Terrorist Groups Form International Alliances.” She talks about it on this week’s edition of The Hunt with WTOP national security correspondent J.J. Green.
