The hand of RAND
"In fact, at least a few Islamists seem to see the hand of the RAND Corporation, an American policy organization that produces reports on terrorism and other subjects, in many plots. This year a hard-line Saudi cleric told this reporter during an interview that “RAND-ites” were seeking to de-Islamize Saudi Arabia." Worth misses the point here. People see the hand of RAND not because it is a policy organization that "produces reports on terrorism and other subjects" but because RAND has contracts with many Arab goverments in the Gulf to "reform" their curricula.
