Terrorism in the United States has been a critical topic for many years, with one of the most well-known terrorist attacks taking place on September 11, 2001. In the Middle East, terrorist attacks often manifest in the form of suicide bombings. With recent bombings, such as the Boston Marathon and an American al Qaeda suicide bomber in Syria, the risk of an American suicide bomber in the United States is beginning to rise. This presentation explores the forensic psychological patterns exhibited by suicide bombers which can potentially aid in the development of the next terrorism frontier.
