I wasn't able to watch this, but they certainly pulled together an all star group of panelists. I assume it's available on video at ARI.

Just as an aside, I saw Colonel Ralph Peters on a morning show today and he called Al Qaeda "a bunch of pederasts who haven't mastered indoor plumbing". Funny and accurate. :D
