The sorry state of the ‘War on Terror’ is laid bare in Ciaran Cassidy’s fascinating documentary Jihad Jane, in which the only terrifying element on display is the inept and banal nature of the ‘threat’ posed by the damaged individuals involved. Cassidy follows the trail of the self-styled white female American jihadi Colleen LaRose to deliver a film which joins a canon of provocative features which attempt to surgically probe the hysteria and manipulation that currently surrounds us. Some elements of this particular battle are so absurd, you don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
