    Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig framed by shadow of Adam Gadahn Last month, American al-Qaeda operative Adam Gadahn issued a “convert-to-Islam-or-die message to U.S. President George W. Bush, Daniel Pipes, Michael Scheuer, Steve Emerson and Robert Spencer. This attempt at forced conversion to Islam followed the “conversion” at gunpoint of the two kidnapped Fox News reporters Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig. What exactly was the significance of these events? On the one hand, these attempts at forced conversion were in clear continuity with Islam’s long history of calling people to convert before waging war on them. But how exactly...

    BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan, May 30, 2006 — As improvised explosive devices continue to ravage the area, officials from Afghanistan, Pakistan and the U.S. are responding by proposing an old remedy – cooperation. More than 70 leaders from the three nations and other coalition members attended the Counter IED Symposium from May 22 to May 24 at Bagram Airfield in an effort to neutralize the threat of improvised explosive devices in the area. “IEDs are the biggest threat to the Afghan people and the military effort in Afghanistan,” said Afghan National Army Col.

    On July 18, CBS/Infinity radio affiliate WTIC AM in Hartford was scheduled to begin airing commercials for an upcoming symposium on terrorism hosted by the Peoples’ Truth Forum (PTF). On July 15, a CBS/Infinity sales representative notified PTF’s president, Jeffrey Epstein, that the ads were being cancelled because of a decision by the legal division. According to Frank Salvato’s WorldNetDaily article, "CBS/Infinity Radio blacks out anti-terror conference," their official statement said, "Too many people might be emotionally affected by the subject matter…It’s too controversial to be aired at this time." The cancellation was made a week after the first London...

    Those who think terrorism is incident specific don't understand the terrorist mind."" -- John Howard, Australian Prime Minister, July 21, 2005 A second attempt at terror attacks in London, coming exactly two weeks after the first deadly round, have once again wreaked havoc in London, leaving its people wary and insecure about their surroundings. With people on edge on both sides of the Atlantic, it is surprising that CBS/Infinity Radio would pass on an opportunity to carry advertising for a symposium on terrorism designed to educate the American people on the terrorist mindset. But that is exactly what happened. As...

    "The only person who matters is Allah — and the only question he will ask me is ‘How many infidels did you kill?’” These are the words of Marwan Abu Ubeida, the subject of a Time magazine piece entitled “Inside the Mind of an Iraqi Suicide Bomber.” It is gratifying to see Time being willing to make this trip inside Marwan’s mind, since most mainstream media outlets have been singularly uninterested in the thought processes of jihad terrorists. But even Time doesn’t explore the implications of Marwan’s words. And this is no trivial omission: jihadists from Osama bin Laden and...

    Dear Fellow American: For many decades we here in the United States thought of terrorism as something that happened “overseas.” It was something that our borders – two oceans and two “friendly” countries – shielded us from. We were being naïve. The devastation of the attacks on September 11th was the result of years of preparation and the conglomeration of resources by thoroughly evil minds. Their brand of wickedness had been experienced before yet for whatever reason we chose to place little heed in the message being delivered – “We want you dead!” 1983 - Sixty-three people, including the...

    In a world in which a US diplomatic official can assert that "the events of September 11 have brought into sharper focus the importance of recognizing and respecting religious diversity in America and around the world," one of the chief problems we face is the near-universal unwillingness to face squarely what we are really up against and what we must do about it. 9/11 was not about religious diversity. It was about jihad terrorism. The threat that jihadists present today, not just to the United States, but to Indonesia, the Philippines, India, Israel, Nigeria, and other states all across the...

  • Symposium: Treason? (Klehr, Haynes, Estrich and Brennan detailed discussion of Coulter's book)

    Ann Coulter’s new book Treason has raised some eyebrows within the conservative camp. While making legitimate points about where liberals have been wrong on foreign policy issues, the conservative pundit and author arguably went too far by 1) defending Joseph MacCarthy and 2) accusing all liberals of treason. Joe McCarthy was an individual who severely damaged the cause of anti-Communism. Why would a conservative try to legitimize him? And what purpose is served by accusing all political opponents of “treason”? Doesn’t such a broad-brushed charge profoundly trivialize the word “treason” itself  and make it more difficult to discuss actual cases of treason in a serious way?...
