154: Interview With Dr. John Mueller Author Of “Overblown: How Politicians And The Terrorism Industry Inflate National Security Threats, And Why We Believe Them”
Is the terrorist threat overblown? Well, interesting that you would ask because on this program we interview Dr. John Mueller of Ohio State University who is the author of, among other books, “Overblown: How Politicians And The Terrorism Industry Inflate National Security Threats, And Why We Believe Them” - a book published by Free Press. Dr. Mueller says that the likelihood that a person outside a war zone will perish at the hands of an international terrorist over an 80-year-period is about 1 in 80,000 whereas an American’s chance of dying in a car crash during this same time period is 1 in 80. What the odds are that your average American, in his car, will crash into a terrorist, we do not know. Listen, please, and, perhaps, be not quite so frightened.
