BBC's Suggestion

Just caught an ad for this upcoming show on the BBC, Al Qaeda: Time To Talk. Here's what they have to say about the programme-

Reporter Peter Taylor has spent five years since 9/11 investigating Al Qaeda in Britain and around the world.

In the first of two special investigations, Taylor concludes that Iraq has become the dominant radicalising and recruiting force for many muslims and that British support for US foreign policy has made Britain a prime target.

With the so called 'War on Terror' far from won and the August's chaos at UK airports, is it time to consider a new approach?

To try and end the violence, is it time to engage with Al Qaeda?

I wonder what exactly they would have us say to Al Qaeda? "We surrender"? Is there anything else they would be satisfied hearing from us? I guess I'll have to tune in on 3rd September to see exactly how the BBC thinks we should be running the war on terror.
