YPIN: Winning the Minds: America's Counterterrorism Strategy after the Arab Spring
Join YPIN and author Francisco Martin-Rayo for a conversation about his travels through terrorist recruiting grounds in Yemen, Pakistan, and the Somali border, and America's counterterrorism strategy after the Arab Spring.  The talk will focus both on the unprecedented changes in the region, and what they mean for America's counterterrorism strategy, and about the author's experiences during his travels, including: his detention by the Yemeni Intelligence Service after being confused for an Israeli spy; meetings with Pakistani intelligence officials who talk about the beginnings of the Taliban movement and how they funded it; drunken nights with Kenyan government officials who admit to recruiting Somali refugee children to fight against al-Qaeda; and a stroll through a desecrated ancient Jewish cemetery in the middle of al-Qaeda territory.
