Comments | The Soft Power of Militant Jihad -

I read this article by Thomas Hegghammer in the New York Times with very mixed feelings. On the one hand, interesting, as I did know a lot of what's reported here. And yet, and yet, it risks humanizing a barbaric outfit and making it more attractive.
I note the comments are mostly negative. As in "why did the Times allow this to be published?
