Early terrorism expert

Robert H. Kupperman, who more than 30 years ago was among the first officials to tell the White House of the dangers of a terrorist attack on the United States, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Friday at his home in Washington.

From 1975 onward, as an author of top-secret studies and chairman of task forces, he consistently predicted that the U.S. would be the target of a major terrorist attack.

The studies looked at the likely effects of a spectacular terrorist assault on the United States. No one at the White House paid any attention, according to a study by the 9/11 Commission.
