Build a Chart
Using the provided Week 4 Discussion Directions and Chart Template located in your online classroom, build a simple chart for a known international terrorist group that is active today. The group you decide to research does not have to have characteristics of each of the Chemical, radiological, biological, nuclear, or explosive (CRBNE) elements. Make the Chart fit to your needs for this evaluation.
Across the top, list

Specific tactics of your chosen international terrorist organization.
Specific techniques of your chosen international terrorist organization.
Specific capabilities of your chosen international terrorist organization.

(Examples include small arms attack, improvised explosives, hostage taking, all the way to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high explosives. You may add or subtract other types of attacks if you want to address another capability of the group selected.)
Down the left side, list

Availability of components.
Training required.
Portability of the device / employability.
Expertise to develop.
Psychological impact.

(You may incorporate additional categories.)
Once you build your chart, populate the chart’s blank cells with historical events that have occurred over the last five to 10 years. Leave the cell blank if there is no evidence. Use credible sources for this assignment. Newspaper articles are a good source of information of historical events that have occurred. You can do a Google search as well.
Then, assign red, yellow, orange, and green to each box. Use green for event or target not likely, yellow for unknown, orange for knowledge but missing something, and red for highly likely. Do not use any classified or “for official use only” (FOUO) sources. The document must be uploaded with your initial post. Your goal in creating the document is to demonstrate your understanding of the international terrorist organization succinctly. In addition, you may wish to access the provided Microsoft Word Tables Quick Start Guide located in your online classroom on how to add colors to a table cell.
Once completed, attach the chart document to your initial forum post and submit it to the forum.
Analysis
Based on your chart, which type of attack would be the most likely to be carried out by terrorists today in America? Which the least likely?
Your initial analysis must be at least 300 words in length. Support your post with examples from the required material and/or other sources or official government websites. Using APA formatting, cite your sources within your paragraph, and include reference entries for your sources at the end of the post as well.
You must post your analysis and the chart in the discussion forum.
