For three years I have taught a seminar on terrorism derived from a course of instruction I helped write for the Office for Domestic Preparedness.
There are always readings, discussions, papers, etc., and there's always the usual essay question final exam.
But there's also a way to get out of the final exam.
You just have to answer one question correctly, and you receive an automatic A for the final.
Why does Israel suffer from constant suicide bomb attacks against its population, but not serious infrastructure attacks, while the US has suffered infrastructure attacks but no suicide bombers wandering into weddings or shopping malls?
The answer to this question reveals why our current strategy in the so-called War on Terror is fatally flawed.
Can you come up with it?
