Wright's "Above all, don't do anything" strategy against Islamic terrorism seems to have been cribbed from Pakistan's military and intelligence community--or has he, perhaps, served them as some sort...

Re: Lessons Learned: The Islamophobia Network (Wajahat Ali & Tim Murphy)

Re: Lessons Learned: Anti-Muslim Bias Goes Mainstream (Farhana Khera & Aziz Huq)

Re: Values Added: A Crowded God Field (Peter Laarman & Sarah Posner)
