This is one of the TED talks I used in class this spring...

Economist Loretta Napoleoni made an interesting presentation to TED titled "The intricate economics of terrorism" I suppose I can understand that the average terror cell doesn't look for members inclined to think for themselves, but I was surprised to hear that being a terrorist is tedious work that primarily involves non-stop fundraising.  It's worth a look.
