    An interesting documentary comparing Neo-con movement (a sort of politico-christian movement) with the political-Islamist movement.

    The most interesting parts are from part 3 onwards below. The rise of political Islamic thought and its suppression leading to the splinter movements to turn violent in Egypt and Algeria are similar in some ways to the events in Kashmir and in present day Pakistan.

    Some lessons for people in the sub-continent as well.

    Conversations Host Harry Kreisler welcomes Steve Coll, Pulitzer prize winning author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan and Bin Laden for a discussion of how the superpower conflict in the last stages of the Cold War, U.S. foreign policy before and after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the political dynamics of South Asia created the setting in which Islamic terrorism took root and flourished
