Terrorism has taken on a new form in which loss of life is par for the course and where terrorist demands are often impossible to meet. To combat these new absolutist terror- ists, the US government has developed innovative approaches to defend national security, including negotiating with state sponsors of terrorism with the threat of force for noncompli- ance, isolating the violent actors by offering financial rewards for assistance in combating ter- ror, and offering and employing international intelligence assistance.
