On September 11, 2001 Osama bin Laden ordered his suicide assassins to fly airliners into the World Trade Towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The teams that hijacked the four jetliners included men with pilot's training who claimed affiliations with airlines and were willing to die for the cause of bin Laden. After his training camps were destroyed by American troops, his organizations conduct training and recruitment using the Internet and digitally edited home videos.

Before 38 of the cultists killed themselves in ritual suicide to join aliens on a UFO, they ran a business called "Computer Nomads." Every day, the members' van would arrive at the office at precisely 8 a.m. and leave at 5. In between, about 10 members would sit at their computer terminals clicking away on the mouse, building web pages without a break. Their leader, Marshall Applewhite, promised his followers an end to suffering, doubt, and confusion.

During morning rush hour on March 20, 1995, the deadly nerve gas sarin poured into the Tokyo subway system, killing 12 people and injuring 6,000 more. This attack was carried out by the Aum Supreme Truth cult, a high-tech billion dollar empire of New Age zealots. Their leader, Shoko Asahara, manipulated them with designer drugs and mind control.

In the jungles of Guyana in 1978, People's Temple leader Jim Jones ordered over nine hundred of his followers to swallow a suicide cocktail of cyanide-spiked Kool-Aid while his henchmen, armed with guns and arrows, stood at the edge of the crowd threatening to shoot any resisters.
