14. Thanks, I read it
Excellent article. This corroborates the theory that Andy Curtis (that's his name, right?) was advancing in the Power of Nightmares series, that al-Qaeda is mostly a convenient bogeyman readily used by opportunistic politicians. I've never seen his assertion be debunked, that the name "al-Qaeda" was never used before the FBI decided to use it in 2001. Not to say that there aren't Islamic terrorist groups - there are plenty - but there's no world-wide coordinating authority with a name and a hierarchy and so on which is lead by Osama Bin Laden. Shows you how easy it is to plant these myths in our collective conciousness.
