“President Obama’s commencement address to the graduating class at Barnard College on Monday had no throwaway lines. It was for and about women; choosing a women’s college for a highly touted presidential graduation speech was a signal that Democrats will use every opportunity to make gender, and gender rights, a political issue this fall.”
Kayyem was also interviewed by NPR in “Why Do Terrorists So Often Go For Planes?” on May 15, 2012.
