The History of the Car Bomb

AC writes in with an article on the history of car bombs by Tom Davis. This is an interesting read, providing some background on what's turning out to be a very common threat in some parts of the world.

From a related mitgation standpoint, check out the U.S. Government's FEMA Risk Management Series, which has two good publications that provide guidance in securing buildings from car bombs and other threats (FEMA 426 - Reference Manual to Mitigate Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings and FEMA 427 - Primer for Design of Commercial Buildings to Mitigate Terrorist Attacks).
