The Ever-Present Specter Of Terrorism

The latest news about an apparent terrorist exercise is just a reminder that terrorist groups like al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are out there, probing for weaknesses and looking for opportunities to pull off some new form of attack against the United States.  It is encouraging to see that our intelligence services, no doubt working with intelligence services abroad, were able to detect this latest effort — and I am confident that for every success that is the subject of coverage in the news media there are hundreds of successes that are never disclosed in order to not reveal secret sources or methods.  In any case, we should all commend our government on its vigilance in this case.
