People in the US who quietly band together and adopt radical ways - not just established overseas terrorist groups like al-Qaida - pose a serious threat to the American's security, a new police analysis has concluded. The New York Police Department report released Wednesday describes a process in which young men - often legal immigrants from the Middle East who are frustrated with their lives in their adopted country - adopt a philosophy that puts them on the path to violence and attacking civilians that Muslim extremists say is acceptable under jihad, or holy war. At a briefing, NYPD officials argued that local law enforcement is best suited to deal with the homegrown terror threat. "Hopefully, the better we're informed about this process, the more likely we'll be to detect and disrupt it," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said during the meeting with private security executives at police headquarters.
