One thought on “Jihad and 21st Century Terrorism

  1. Fascinating. Thanks very much, mattt with three tees. I have some reservations about a few of Dr Sageman’s attitudes (and some of his humour), but I think he is mainly right on. His comments about the Taliban at two points late in the discussion following his main presentation are especially true and important. The use of the term in the West has not only been exaggerated but sloppy, and people need to hear this kind of caution and common sense about them.
