ABSTRACT
The desires of terror organizations to possess and use weapons of mass destruction have sparked conversations in various communities across the globe. Research has shown that weapons of mass destruction have been used by various loosely supported groups in recent years; to include acts in Chechnya, North Korea and others. As of now, biological and radiological weapons possessions are still somewhat vague and unconfirmed by public records. This paper will also explore the probable use of the type of weapon of mass destruction agent, the availability of the agent to a terror organization and the objectives of a terror organization's use of a weapon of mass destruction on a population, based on public information. The author realizes that public information may not contain all necessary information, but believes enough information exists to produce a valid conclusion.
