Thanks, Tony. Terrorists are very, very good using the media--all kinds of media--for their purposes. In comparison, the U.S. government and other western governments have not been able to use communication to counter the terrorist propaganda that conditions especially young people to be recruited into terrorist cells.

Brigitte, (if I may), I ordered and rec'd your media and terrorism book this afternoon, and can't wait to read it!

I learned from a champion debater (Cambridge)that the best way to understand and dismantle the opposing viewpoint is to try to defend it in a discussion. It would be interesting if our state dept were that thoughtful, instead of constantly preaching with their backs to the congregation. Tony
