The goal of interrogation, much like interviewing, is that of eliciting information from the potential terrorist. However, unlike a simple question-and-answer format, interrogation involves the process of using various techniques, from rapport building to deception, to even the utilization of torture. The process of deradicalization involves the deconstruction of factors that led the individual to become radicalized in the first place. The first part of the process involves distancing the detained terrorist from the extremist group. The second part of the process begins with changing the radical ideology the terrorist believes to be true. Currently, while some countries have discussed the success of the interventions, there has not been sufficient data to indicate their efficacy within the terrorist population. Successful intervention occurs when the terrorist is able to reintegrate with society at large, is accepted by his community, and is able to function in various psychosocial domains of Saudi Arabian life, as he did before becoming radicalized.
