The terrorism we see and the terrorism we don't see

Sajjan Gohel is surrounded by stories of bombings, shooting sprees and sinister plots. Most of us hear about the terrorist attacks that end tragically, but as security analyst for the Asia Pacific Foundation, Sajjan hears about all the near misses as well.

We talked with Sajjan about how terrorism has changed in the years since 9/11, how scholars might be the most effective tool we have to fight Al Qaeda and why all of us should know more about the invisible threats around us.

NewsTune: (Here Comes the) Public Plan!

Posted at 5:22 PM on July 22, 2009 by Jeff Horwich (2 Comments)

Seems like the debate over health care reform could come down this whole "public option" or "public plan" thing: Will the government have an insurance plan that can catch the uninsured and provide some additional competition for private insurers? Republicans in Congress don't like it; Obama has said he won't sign a bill without it.

If that's not a song-in-the-making, I don't know what is. With a special cameo by Glenn Beck!

Thanks to Sanden Totten for helping putting his super hero mind together with mine to find a suitable tune.

Listen for this one in the next podcast.
