Terrorist groups and counterinsurgent groups are not the same, says Kilcullen. Terrorist groups draw their ability to operate from the tightness of their network of secret clandestine cells. Insurgents draw their strength from their ability to manipulate and mobilize a social base. So the terrorist hides within the broader society. The insurgent manipulates and rides a social wave. Al-Qaeda is an insurgency, not a traditional terrorist group.
This Carnegie Council event took place on May 6, 2009. For the full video, audio, and transcript, please go to http://www.cceia.org
