HBL Excerpt of the Day

I had not read (or watched) anything by Ayaan Hirsi Ali (the former Muslim, turned dissident) until the last couple of days. Now that I have read some, I am stunned by how intellectually good she is.

Below is a 9 minute interview (against a leftist interviewer), a highly controversial text interview, and a 28 minute "best of" collection of clips from debates and interviews. All are excellent.
