    The majority of the recent terror plots against the U.S. have involved people espousing a radical and violent view of Islam, making it difficult to ignore the role that religion plays in this particular threat. But critics say focusing too closely on Islam and the religious motives of those who have attempted terror attacks threatens to alienate an entire community.

    Yesterday, law-enforcement officials testified before the House Homeland Security Committee about prison inmates who adopt a radical interpretation of Islam while incarcerated and become intent on attacking the U.S. when they're released.
