The Threat from Within
By Mortimer B. Zuckerman, U.S. News & World Report
December 10, 2006

Today all eyes are on Iraq. It's called the center of the war on terrorism, but it must not monopolize our attention. We need a third eye because we are now less likely to be attacked by international terrorists than by homegrown American citizens, self-radicalized individuals who are members of groups inspired by al Qaeda propaganda.

The jihadists are not just another protest group. They recognize no moral and legal standards-and we are fighting them with one hand behind our backs: The sad fact is that over the years our government has not earned enough trust to allow for reasonable compromises by which the intelligence agencies could get the bad guys without violating the privacy of the good guys.
Funny you don't hear any whining in overseas locations where troops are stationed fully armed in airports and other areas where mass transit is used. Yet in our country we want it all and refuse to except to be safe it is required to violate our rights at minimum look as it is fair across the board. If these sleeper cells want to cause a ruckus it is at their pre-determined time and place and we may not catch them anyway. It is a waiting game, it has been like that for a very long time and they can hold out. I'd like to think it isn't possible but they draw on complacency.
