Weekend roundup

I haven't posted a weekly links list in awhile. Not much new has shown up, and seems the best stuff I've been bookmarking has been some of the studies readily available in Docuticker.

But, I've been keeping a running list so may as well post some of them.

    From Combatting Terrorism Center at West Point.
