- Unless you’ve been a coma for the past couple of weeks, the Senate is in throes of confirming another Supreme Court nominee. It’s been all over the news. TV and Talk-radio pundits are in the midst of a major “issue-oriented” feeding frenzy. The nominee is Elena Kagan. And, as usual, the Lefties can’t say enough good about her, while the Righties can’t say enough bad about her. I’m not going to get into the nominee’s qualifications for the job.

Is Al Qaeda still Alive?

- The debate between Bruce Hoffman and Marc Sageman over the perceived threat posed by Al-Qaeda is an intriguing one. Both Hoffman and Sageman are well known terrorist experts and present an interesting thesis in support of their respective arguments. Hoffman argues that Al-Qaeda is still active after reconstructing itself in the Tribal Areas in Pakistan, and therefore, the threat posed by Al-Qaeda cannot be discredited. However, Sageman argues that the threat posed by Al-Qaeda is no longer critical, and suggests that the threat posed by terrorists emerging from the concept of leaderless resistance are of greater importance due to the fact that they are harder to detect since they emerge...   [tags: Bruce Hoffman, Marc Sageman]

Analysis of Fagin's Last Night Alive in Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist
