Quick reminder: Steve Emerson, a self-dubbed expert on terrorism, said yesterday that "there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don't go in".
And just as Emerson had been getting criticised for his geography (and "sloppy research", he admitted)...
...his credentials as a terrorism expert also started to get challenged.
Because hey, waterboarding's not that bad, right?
