The Power of Nightmares

BBC NEWS | Programmes | The Power of Nightmares: Baby It's Cold Outside: "Should we be worried about the threat from organised terrorism or is it simply a phantom menace being used to stop society from falling apart?

At the heart of the story are two groups: the American neo-conservatives and the radical Islamists. Both were idealists who were born out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world. These two groups have changed the world but not in the way either intended.

Together they created today's nightmare vision of an organised terror network. Those with the darkest fears became the most powerful."
