Terrorism Studies Latest Academic Fashion

Guess you might say I was counterterror before counterterrorism was cool and ahead of my time since I took a Political Science class on International Terrorism way back in 1996.

Had an interest in the topic ever since early high school as I figured it would be one of the major forces shaping what then seemed the distant geopolitical future. One reason I don't work in Downtown DC where I'd have to take the subway.

At least students might be studying something productive for a change rather than "queer theory" or other such PC drivel. Still wonder though how many of these classes will be cast in "It's all America & The White Man's Fault" frame of reference.
