"Salafism: Understanding a Strain of Radical Islam" Part Three

This week's "Reclaiming the Culture" features the third and final part of Dolores Meehan's interview with Brian Fairchild of the Intrepid Group, LLC on Salafi Islam. Obviously a very timely issue.

In part one, Mr. Fairchild described his background and experiences in Arabia, and began to describe what Salafism is.

In part two, he expanded on Salafism, and on the inadequate conceptual and instrumental response of our government.

In part three, Mr. Fairchild shows how Salfism is being inculcated into American society.

Listen here:

Mr. Fairchild is the co-founder of Intrepid Group, LLC. Since 9/11, Mr. Fairchild and his partner have trained over 10,000 US counterterrorism officials on the subject of Islamist terrorism, including officials from CIA, FBI, military special operations, and state and local law enforcement. The picture above shows Mr. Fairchild with Crown Prince Sheikh Saud bin Saqr al Qasimi of the Emirate of Ras al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates.

Podcasts can be downloaded, too.
