Nazir is dead. Actually, both Nazirs are dead. Earlier this month,Mullah Nazir, a Taliban and al-Qaeda commander, was killed by an American drone strike in South Waziristan, a tribal area of Pakistan. Also recently killed: Abu Nazir, the fictional al-Qaeda terrorist in the suspenseful Showtime series Homeland.

I suspect more Americans know about Abu Nazir than Mullah Nazir. It also seems possible that more Americans are forming their understanding of the global conflict now underway based on television dramas and movies than on newspaper dispatches and the talking heads who quarrel over the airwaves.

This may explain,...
