She highlights an oscillating and inconsistent strategy at the federal and state levels to counter terrorism in the U.S., shifting focus back and forth between white supremacist hate groups and Islamic extremists over the years. She talks through several key examples of what drives these patterns and briefly discusses Daryl Johnson’s role in these events, foreshadowing his upcoming segments in this Teach-Out.
