Terrorist activities and attacks even in the second phase of the 20th century still lacked radical religious views. For instance, the radical leftist association, Weatherman detonated a bomb in the US Capitol as a way of protesting the invasion of Laos in the US. Likewise, the Jewish Defense League is thought to have detonated a bomb outside Aeroflot’s NY City office in protesting against the mistreatment of Soviet Jews.

Smith and Damphouse (1999) contend that the 1980s saw the advent of ideologically and religiously minded terrorism. The extent and sophistication of terrorism also was unprecedented to this extent. For instance, for the first time and in 1984, the US experienced with the first incident of bioterrorism at the hands of Rajneesh Movement. According to US health officials, 751 people were infected with salmonella while about 50 were hospitalized. As attacks became more sophisticated, government involvement became more pronounced. This is underscored by the fate of the Pan Am Flight 103 which was involved in the Lockerbie Bombing, and thereby killing 243 passengers and 16 flight attendants on board. The three-year joint investigations by the US FBI and Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary seriously implicated two Libyan nationals whose arrest warrants were issued on November 1999. Interestingly, the former Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi flatly refused to hand them over.
