Another Library Resource
Tonight I've added a fascinating document to the Library Resources page. We've talked about "sudden Jihad syndrome" adn homegrown terrorism on here before, but have you ever really thought about how it happens? Tonight's addition is a Senate report on the radicalization of Zachary Chesser, a seemingly normal high school kid in Northern Virginia "who converted to Islam after graduating from high school in the summer of 2008 and just over 2 years later pleaded guilty to three felonies, including attempting to provide material support to al-Shabaab."
Was it a descent in to madness, or could it happen to any kid who fell into the wrong crowd?
