My brother-in-law direct from Afghanistan-by-way-of-Pakistan now wants to go to UC Santa Barbara to study poli sci IR...times could get interesting for that little fuck soon enough.
Could be. Usually though, terrorism tends to be its own department, or at least only loosely associated with IR, since there is very little real theoretical crossover between it and IR theory. If they study criminology or deviant psychology there, it might easily come under those fields instead.
Isn't that entrapment?
No, because the DoJ isn't part of the UK government (yes, this was an American government website) and because he was reported by someone in the IT dept at the University.
