Lots of terrorists are engineers

According to Diego Gambetta and Steffen Hertog, there’s a larger share of engineers in terrorist groups than in the general population. In fact, in the militant groups that were studied by the two researchers, half of all members who had advanced degrees had them in some sort of engineering.

Strangely, this preponderance only exists in conservative and traditionalist causes and not in communist and anarchist groups.
