    This is a short interview by Sandy Rios with Michael Bachman where she explains some things that are going on in the government and military that most people are not aware of. If you want to listen to the whole thing it is about 11 minutes long. Open the player to full page and fast forward to about 42 minutes which also cover the supreme court. Or start at 50 minutes and she talks about what is happening through this administration and the military.

    Um...what's your point? I listened to the interview; and while it is a mistake to not teach about radical islam, terrorism is not limited to islam. To focus *only* on islam while teaching about terrorism is a mistake. Terrorism springs from an ideology that uses things like islam to help justify--in the terrorist's mind--their actions. But the Irish Republican Army, guilty of many acts of terrorism, was not based on islam. The actions of the Army of God--domestic terrorists--were not based on islam.

    Yes, it's a mistake to keep islam out of the discussion altogether. It's also a mistake to give the impression that islam is the *only* form of terrorism. Why? Because you teach people to get into a frame of mind that sees only one type of terrorist, and then we miss the one that doesn't "fit the mold."
