Recommended Viewing

Tonight, PBS kicks off a series of documentaries called America at a Crossroads with a two hour look at the origins and ideology of Al Qaeda and the global jihadist movement. There is a recent controversy about this series that I'll address later, but overall it looks like it should be well worth watching. I'm especially looking forward to Irshad Manji's contribution on the plight of Muslim reformers. There's also an episode discussing the Patriot Act and the 2005 Connecticut case. A full broadcast schedule is available here.

Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali are remarkable women. It's interesting that some of the leading voices critical of radical Islam are women.
