5 Myths about Keeping America Safe from Terrorism

By Stephen Flynn

The greatest threat isn't posed by the direct harm terrorists could inflict; it comes from what we do to ourselves when we are spooked. It is how we react -- or more precisely, how we overreact -- to the threat of terrorism that makes it an appealing tool for our adversaries.

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

01/06/10

It has been eight years since al-Qaeda attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon: eight long years in which the ‘war on terrorism’ — begun by George W.
