Maine Senator: New Strategy Needed for Lone Wolf Terrorists


By DAVID SHARP, Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Sen. Angus King of Maine says the intelligence community may have to develop new approaches to deal with so-called “lone wolf” terrorists who aren’t directly linked to governments or terror groups.

King, who sits on the Intelligence Committee, says it remains to be seen if two ethnic Chechens from Russia acted alone in setting off bombs at the Boston Marathon but that the evidence points in that direction.

King told The Associated Press on Friday that there’s a tendency to continue to fight the last war, whether it was the Cold War mindset or the war on terror groups. He says lone wolves represent a new problem.

The bombings killed three and injured more than 260. One of the brothers was killed in a gunbattle; the other is in custody.
