Let's Stop Denying Made in America Terrorism

by Earl Ofari Hutchinson

The mass killings in Colorado Springs, Charleston, South Carolina,San Bernardino, and numerous other places have come to symbolize what has become a ritual; namely made-in-America terrorism. Yet, government agencies, much of the media, and the general public refuse to see and define this terrorism not as foreign, but home grown terrorist acts.

The Prince of Counterterrorism: Washington's favorite Saudi, Muhammad bin Nayef, is the scourge of al-Qaida and Iran but no friend of those who want to see major reforms in the kingdom

by Bruce Riedel

In The Prince of Counterterrorism, Brookings Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel tells the story of Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef (MBN) and his contributions to the security of the kingdom and the Arab world. In the spring of 2015, King Salman removed his brother from the line of succession, and chose instead  his nephew, MBN, as his heir. Riedel explains why this decision is critical for the U.S. as MBN has been America's closest Saudi ally in the fight against terrorism, even helping to thwart attacks from al-Qaida on the U.S. However, while MBN's leadership is critical in countering the growth of groups like al-Qaida and ISIS, Riedel shows why he is unlikely to support social reforms within the kingdom.THE BROOKINGS ESSAY: In the spirit of its commitment to high-quality...
