To say that Ayann Hirsi Ali is in hiding might be misleading for some
people.  To some people being "in hiding" might mean "not being seen in
public".  That is not the case with Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  

I was in the front row of a sold out event in Palo Alto earlier this
year where Ayann Hirsi Ali was on stage and interviewed for over an
hour.  There were bodyguards but having bodyguards is not the same as
not being seen in public.  So let us all try to be more precise.

According to the information I can find online Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a
Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute; not a professor.
If someone has information that she is currently (or formerly) a
professor please list the particulars and the source of the information.
