    Imagine that... combined numbers of extreme left-wing vs extreme right-wing attacks which they included in their study shows the extreme left-wing FAR outweighing the extreme right-wing. Yet the left is often quick to label a perpetrator extreme right-wing when something makes the news.

    Old news. Majority of the incidents in this report dates back to the 70's. While I find the stats interesting they have very little accuracy to the present. Notice that since the 80's terrorism has been much lower. Seems the 70's was a very violent time for our country.

    I wonder what style requirements the report was written to satisfy that allowed the incomplete citation on page 27 to (Dahl 2011) for "evidence that there have been large increases in the proportion of foiled to completed plots in the last decade."

    That citation may be to The Plots that Failed: Intelligence Lessons Learned from Unsuccessful Terrorist Attacks Against the United States, DOI:10.1080/1057610X.2011.582628 Erik J. Dahl

It considers what kinds of intelligence and security measures are most useful in counterterrorism, and argues that the conventional wisdom about why intelligence fails—because analysts and agencies are unable to “connect the dots”—is wrong. Most plots, especially domestic terrorist plots, are not foiled through imaginative analysis, but through conventional law enforcement efforts and aggressive domestic intelligence collection that reveal to authorities just what the plotters are up to.
    As to the previous comment, it's a paraphrase of the reports conclusion.
