They are the ones who are creating these new terror tactics and it is our job to find them and foil them. That there is the big accomplishment. It shows that our Federal Gov has gained some of the inter-department communication that analysts and former gov't officials said we had lost around the 9/11 time.
Doug, I hope you're completely right and that it will never happen.
However, I sincerely doubt it...
