TV: The Wanted
NBC News launched a new show yesterday: The Wanted. The show features a team tracking down terrorists, intending to bring them to justice.
The first episodes focus on terrorists living in Europe. This week's episode (available on YouTube) focused on Mullah Krekar, who lives in Norway. The team tried, unsuccessfully, to convince Norwegian authorities to deport him to Iraq. Next week they will track down Mamoun Darkazanli in Germany and try to bring him to justice in Spain.
The show is drawing quite a lot of criticism: it's mix of journalism and drama, on the one hand, and the assumption that an American TV show can drop in by a foreign country and force its hand regarding an internal issue, on the other.
