As we all know, terrorism, by its very nature is difficult to combat.
A certain famous stage hypnotist uses the following trick when performing. He puts the whole audience in a trance at the start of the show. He hypnotises them to believe they have had a wonderful time and to tell their friends how great it was. In fact there is no show. He eats his dinner, reads the newspaper and watches a bit of TV. Finally he wakes them up and they go home talking excitedly about what they've seen.
There is a war on terror and the government want to use the hypnotist to help them win.
How can our hypnotist modify/refactor his skills to successfully wage war on the terrorists?
EDIT in response to answers and comments
The vital part is that the hypnotist is working for the government. He must therefore work within the laws of the country he is operating in. At least, he must appear to work within them. So for example he can't just hypnotise someone to commit suicide. Even if he did it covertly, the suicide would cause police and press attention.
He must always appear to be squeaky clean. Nothing must be traceable back to him or any authorities. A government enquiry must find not even the slightest evidence of anything that violates human rights legislation. If he can successfully fake this then all well and good.
