ABSTRACT
A string of incidents in 2009 involving Muslims living in the United States accused of plotting terrorist acts, either abroad or in the United States, raised new concerns about the prospect of domestic terrorist attacks. Such concerns had largely faded since the Al Qaeda attacks of September 11, 2001. But eight years later, news reports quoted officials as questioning their assumptions that American Muslims were better integrated into society than some of their European counterparts. The uncovered plots involved both individual Muslims as well as groups. Some suspects were immigrants, others were second-generation children of immigrants, and some were native-born converts to Islam.
