The Spectacular Rise And Catastrophic Fall Of Three Liberian Presidents by Ambassador David D. Chieh, Sr.

Original Title: The Spectacular Rise And Catastrophic Fall Of Three Liberian Presidents

In the tiny country of Limbakar, there arose a dramatic transformation of the government, the first in its history. Twenty-four hours after this gruesome change, two private soldiers were attracted by the array of posh cars lined up in the parking lot; they took a close look into the cars which had their keys still in the ignitions and their doors unlocked. Compelled by their curiosity, they entered two of the cars; the first turned the key, and the engine started; the second did likewise. The first pushed the gear forward, while the second pushed the gear in reverse. Both cars were in motion. The first rolled forward, while the second rolled backward. Both cars moved uncontrollably in a merry-go-round scenario, and the bewildered soldiers were unable to manipulate the cars but barked orders at the cars to halt. But the cars were not attuned to taking orders. The cars only stopped after an explosive crash into the parked cars, causing a giant inferno from which both soldiers escaped unhurt. The adjutant rebuked the soldiers for their downright indiscipline, but they replied, “The cars disobeyed orders to halt and ought to be court-martialed.” The adjutant ordered the soldiers locked up for life, because even their lifetime pay would not cover the restoration of the value of the spectacular posh cars, which their irresponsible action has brought to a catastrophe.

The Spectacular Few by Mark S. Hamm

Original Title: The Spectacular Few

The Madrid train bombers, shoe-bomber Richard Reid, al-Qaeda in Iraq, and the 9/11 attacks—all were led by men radicalized behind bars. By their very nature, prisons are intended to induce transformative experiences among inmates, but today’s prisons are hotbeds for personal transformation toward terrorist beliefs and actions due to the increasingly chaotic nature of prison life caused by mass incarceration. In The Spectacular Few, Mark Hamm demonstrates how prisoners use criminal cunning, collective resistance and nihilism to incite terrorism against Western targets. A former prison guard himself, Hamm knows the realities of day-to-day prison life and understands how prisoners socialize, especially the inner-workings and power of prison gangs—be they the Aryan Brotherhood or radical Islam. He shows that while Islam is mainly a positive influence in prison, certain forces within the prison Muslim movement are aligned with the efforts of al-Qaeda and its associates to inspire convicts in the United States and Europe to conduct terrorist attacks on their own. Drawing from a wide range of sources—including historical case studies of prisoner radicalization reaching from Gandhi and Hitler to Malcolm X, Bobby Sands and the detainees of Guantanamo; a database of cases linking prisoner radicalization with evolving terrorist threats ranging from police shootouts to suicide bombings; interviews with intelligence officers, prisoners affiliated with terrorist groups and those disciplined for conducting radicalizing campaigns in prison—The Spectacular Few imagines the texture of prisoners’ lives: their criminal thinking styles, the social networks that influenced them, and personal “turning points” that set them on the pathway to violent extremism. Hamm provides a broad understanding of how prisoners can be radicalized, arguing that in order to understand the contemporary landscape of terrorism, we must come to terms with how prisoners are treated behind bars.
