But thats why I always thought it was kinda stupid Brody was always so confused about what he wanted. And actually because of that, that could be a reason why he's still a terrorist.
Self doubt is common, particularly when you are fighting two polarizing belief structures. Its not that rare for people to be indoctrinatized yet still fighting off tendencies to do the opposite.. Its the whole basis of the difficulty, that each belief is influencing equally.
It has happened with terrorists, religionists, patriots, and many others.
