My inner geek loves this.

Apparently a deal has been brokered between CPB and OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting) to make Islam vs. Islamists available to any PBS stations wanting to air it.
It’s a partial victory. Let’s see how many stations choose to actually air it. Any near Dearborn willing to risk it?
I don’t know how I missed it for so long: Michael Ledeen has a blog.
Michael has been way out in front on Iran for a long time now. I only wish someone at the White House had been reading him these past few years.
It’s been duly added to the Honor Roll here at Buttle’s World. Read it often.
The Smoking Gun has posted the Pentagon’s release of an al Qaeda torture manual. (Warning: Graphic images)
Standing by for the outrage from all those who think the pranks at Abu Ghraib were “torture”…
Stanley Kurtz has a review up.
Indoctrinate U explores the Kafkaesque nightmares that befall students and professors who run up against the P.C. behemoth: A woman with two brothers — one an adopted Guatemalan orphan — writes a letter to her school paper saying she wouldn’t want to see one brother favored over the other because of skin color. A professor questions the fairness of a panel on which all seven speakers favor reparations for slavery. A representative of the College Republicans posts a flier at the campus multi-cultural center advertising a lecture by a conservative black speaker. A student writes a column complaining that the school’s “issues committee” invites only left-leaning speakers to campus. A professor is accidentally revealed to be a Republican. A student from Kuwait writes an essay praising the role of the United States in world affairs. Everyone knows that such actions fly in the face of campus orthodoxy, yet few will be prepared for the enormity of the punishment these nonconformists face.
