Terrorists can be white & Christian
Regarding the "Christian terrorist" Eric Rudolph (which, Juan Cole remarks, is a phrase you will not see in the papers), Dave Neiwert points out that "the hard reality [is] that terrorism does not always come from abroad, from brown-skinned foreigners, but often from our own midst as well..."
Of the 60 right-wing domestic terror operations defused over the past 10 years, Neiwert notes that it wasn't war that kept us safe: "It's important to understand that this terrorism was defeated precisely because we undertook a law-enforcement approach to defeat it. Much of the success was predicated on solid intelligence-gathering and threat assessment, as well as appropriate timing for law-enforcement action." (Orcinus)
