Scott Atran on Terrorism

Our response to terror is a bigger problem than the attacks themselves... 

Point of Inquiry with Chris Mooney and Indre Viskontas routinely does a great job presenting interesting people with important ideas.  That said, Mooney's interview this week with anthropologist Scott Atran is one of the best episodes they've done in a long while.  I download the free podcast from iTunes but there are other feeds.  Well worth a listen.

UPDATE: By way of Schneier on Security here's an excellent essay by Atran - covering much the same ground - for those of you who don't do ear buds.
