Host  Marwan Bishara  discusses why  Empire  decided to examine the consequences of al-Qaeda's resurgence in the Middle East through affiliates like the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.

He puts forth the question of whether or not the United States' position has shifted, depending on how they see the threat of al-Qaeda's expansion: as radical or dangerous, or as something that is benign - that is local and regional, and that does not touch the US.

Empire can be seen from the last Sunday of every month at 2000GMT, and is re-aired during the following week at these times GMT: Monday: 1200GMT; Tuesday: 0100GMT; Wednesday: 0600GMT.
