Adam L. Silverman, PhD*
LeaNder, in comments to COL Lang's (working) vacation notification brought up the new Center for American Progress (CAP) report: Fear Inc. SST readers can find both links to the whole report as pdf, as well as its specific chapters, at the link, as well as CAP's write up on the report. I pulled the whole thing over the weekend and have only had a chance to read through about a third of it, with the plan to do a post about the whole thing tonight. I recommend that anyone who is interested in how this concept of a concerted attempt by Muslims to impose sharia (as if it was one monolithic set of religio-legal concepts) through subterfuge on unsuspecting Americans click through and give it a look. From what I can tell so far they have done a very thorough job in their research and investigation and I doubt anyone will be surprised, both based on what several of us have written about on SST, and others have written elsewhere about just who is spreading this privately funded false message intended to promote anti-Muslim anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and hate.
Just one housekeeping note: I do have official duties during the day (and sometimes after hours as well). While US Army War College (USAWC) encourages its personnel to blog, as well as publish in more traditional venues, I may not get to comments that have been posted immediately. I will clear comments as often as I can my schedule permitting.
