In 2001, Adam Silverman was getting his PhD at the University of Florida in political science. As a master’s level student, Silverman said he worked with others who were studying religous and other identity extrremism. Now he’s a Culture and Foreign Language advisor at the U.S. Army War College. After 9-11, Silverman was a popular interview subject for his expertise. Now, almost ten years later, WUFT-FM caught up with him to talk about the death of Osama bin Laden. News director Tom Krynski interviewed Silverman. Here is part one. We will post more segments throughout the week.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/SilvermanWEB.mp3]
