Terrorism and Engineers - An Indian Perspective

CyberMedia India Online Ltd. (CIOL) published an interesting article on the relationship between terrorist groups and high tech individuals. The article discusses both why terror groups are interested in recruiting engineers for their operations (both cyber and physical) and why well educated and paid people would be attracted to terrorist organizations:
"Engineers that come from societies that are in themselves under threat from internal and external influences, and where alternate (and legal) means of expression are either banned or methodically suppressed will have the third terrorism necessity, a socio/political cause, and will be recruited by (or be found offering their services to) terrorist organizations."

Terror minds look for techie brainpower
