Zachary Chesser: A Case Study in Online Islamist Radicalization and Its Meaning for the Threat of Terrorism: Congressional Report
Carl Levin (ed)
The vast majority of Americans have likely never heard of Zachery Chesser, a young American now serving a 25-year sentence on several terrorism-related charges. Yet, Chesser is significant because he is part of a trend which, if not addressed, threatens the security of our homeland. That is why his story is being described in this report. In recent years, the U.S. has experienced an increase in the number of terrorist plots and attacks within the homeland, including by U.S. citizens. Between September 11, 2001 and February 2012, there were more than 53 cases of homegrown Islamist extremists planning and/or carrying out acts of terrorism against the U.S. The interactive online experience can accelerate the radicalization and mobilization process. This phenomenon is clearly reflected in the rapid radicalization and mobilization of Zachary Chesser, a U.S. citizen who converted to Islam after graduating from high school in the summer of 2008 and just over 2 years later pleaded guilty to three felonies, including attempting to provide material support to al-Shabaab. Contents of this report: Introduction: Homegrown Islamist Radicalization in the Internet Age; Zachary Adam Chesser: A Timeline; The Rapid Radicalization; The Mobilization; The Aftermath; Findings and Recommendations. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
