This blog is an attempt to tell a better story about the people and events related to the global jihad. Most news stories are little more than a re-run of standard newswires and leave out facts that tie the story into an overall picture that shows a surprising continuity. I try to dig deeper, looking at the work of the foreign press both large and small, tying that information with material contained in good blogs, books, court proceeedings, and other sources. It’s about understanding the network better.
Knowing this arms an individual with the information necessary to better evaluate the historical responses of his government, the security organs, and the military, and to better assess what they propose to do in the future.
