GLOBAL TERROR: Globalization and Terrorism

Globalization has been the defining feature of the late twentieth century. [1] Thomas Friedman defines globalization as an ongoing process that "is the inexorable integration of markets, nation-states and technologies to a degree never witnessed before-in a way that is enabling individuals, corporations and nation-states to reach around the world farther, faster, deeper and cheaper than every before."[2] Likewise, Noam Chompsky expresses globalization as "just international integration."[3] Regardless of one's exact definition, globalization has lead to increased transactions across national borders, inter-connected financial markets and large-scale international migration.[4] "Everyday, trillions of dollars flow through the World's foreign exchange markets, which now exceeds $1.5 trillion."[5] The world economy has become more integrated than every before and this movement of trade, money and people is what has been the driving force. Throughout the 1990's, globalization paved the way for many positive phenomenon in the world. This international integration was a major proponent to end poverty, child mortality, totalitarianism, unemployment, war, genocide, environmental catastrophes, low wages, poor working conditions and gender inequality.[6] After the world trade center attack on September 11th and the train bombings in Spain, globalization may be revealing its darker side and pose a greater threat to the security of the world than was once perceived. This threat is due in large part to the fact that today; terrorists have become global actors and are using a combination of the fundamental principles of globalization like technological advances, loosening barriers, international trade, interchangeable currencies and the growing vulnerability of the integrated world to their advantage.

Damaged Justice in the Career Girls Murders of 1963

When two young women--both working professionals, one a teacher, the other a magazine "copy girl"--were found stabbed to death in their apartment in 1963, police had only one thing in mind: close the case.  However, their initial suspect, a mentally incompetent black man, turned out NOT to be their killer, though he was arrested, confessed, and put behind bars.
