I have repeatedly stated that the link between mental health and terrorism is poorly understood and far more complex than our current debate. Here is a recent thread:

Rukmini hit gold with the Caliphate series, in large part by taking advantage of a drugged up loser who should be in jail to freak out the country. This story suggests she is seeing everything through the one lens that works for her, but is doing the rest of us a disservice.
