A picture shows evidence technicians in Round Rock, Texas, searching for evidence at the site where serial bomber Mark Anthony Conditt ended his life with a self-inflicted bomb blast.
Motive Matters: Why the Austin Bomber Wasn't a Terrorist
Mark Anthony Conditt left a lengthy recording in which he reportedly confessed to the bombing spree that plagued Austin, Texas, and even outlined how he constructed each of the devices he deployed. However, what he did not provide in that message was any indication of motive based on ideology, hate or politics. In fact, according to an account of the recording published by the Austin American-Statesman, authorities have noted that Conditt felt no remorse for the killings, describing himself as a psychopath. Despite the fact that a white bomber did kill two people who were racial minorities and wounded two others, there is no evidence to suggest that this was a hate crime or an act of domestic terrorism. It is quite possible to terrorize a city without being a terrorist, which brings us to the key question: Just what is terrorism?

As the Austin Bombing Spree Ends, Lessons Emerge for Spotting the Next Killer
After evading police for 19 days, killing two people and injuring five others, the suspect behind the 2018 Austin bombings took his life with one of his own bombs early March 21. In the process, he injured one more person — a SWAT officer who was approaching bomber Mark Anthony Conditt's vehicle along Interstate Highway 35 north of Austin. Police had identified Conditt as the primary suspect behind the bombings just hours before his death following a flurry of activity the previous 48 hours. Changes in tactics, an increased operational tempo, the recovery of an undetonated device and even a false alarm at a local Goodwill store had set the city on edge.

The Global Aviation Industry Encounters Turbulence in the Gulf
The Global Aviation Industry Encounters Turbulence in the Gulf
The airline industry is one of the most protected sectors in the world, but a new competitor has emerged to challenge the West's longtime dominance of the skies: the Arabian Peninsula. Over the past 15 years, airlines based in the Gulf monarchies of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar have seen a staggering amount of growth. Dubai's Emirates Airlines, for example, recently became the largest airline outside of North America when it carried 51.8 million passengers a whopping 255.3 billion passenger seat kilometers in the 2015-16 fiscal year -- a huge leap from the 5.7 million passengers and 20.5 billion passenger seat kilometers it logged in 2000-01. Qatar Airways and Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways, the latter of which didn't even exist at the beginning of the millennium, have undergone similar growth spurts. Together, the three Gulf companies have upended the global commercial airline industry as it struggles to cope with

Lessons From Old Case Files
The Death of the Blind Sheikh
No period in my career as a government special agent had a more profound effect on me than the early 1990s. At the time, Omar Abdel Rahman, widely known as the "Blind Sheikh," was plotting a campaign of chaos and carnage in New York City. When Abdel Rahman died in prison on Feb. 18, after more than 20 years in U.S. custody, a bloody chapter of U.S. history punctuated by spectacular terrorist plots came to a close.

Lessons From Old Case Files
The Attack on the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel That Never Happened
Just off Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan, only two blocks from St. Patrick’s Cathedral, yellow taxis stop and start before a row of heavy glass doors at the base of an imposing 47-story building. A single doorman stands outside, his white-gloved hands folded. Above him the name of the building is scrawled on the aging concrete: The Waldorf-Astoria. The old hotel has been casting its shadow over 49th Street since 1931, when it was built to replace its two forebears, the Astoria and the Waldorf. (Both hotels were flattened to make way for the Empire State Building.) In all that time, it has consistently been the hotel of choice for celebrities, heads of state and visiting dignitaries. But the Chinese company that acquired it in October 2014 has announced plans to overhaul the entire building, putting the hotel out of commission for three years. In the meantime, leaders of state and
