Should We Fear Domestic Terrorism?

We’ll speak with the HBO documentary Homegrown’s filmmaker Greg Barker and subjects Kerry Cahill (the daughter), Nader Hasan (the cousin), and Philip Mudd, a veteran CIA and FBI counterterrorism official. Hasan and Cahill are both involved in the the Nawal Foundation. Mudd is the author of Takedown: Inside the Hunt for Al Qaeda. The documentary Homegrown is now available from HBO.
