… After the Fact , Yes … [before — hell , no !!]

.. We really need to do a much better job of counterintelligence . What we have now is

neutered , and is severely limited . What we should have ? Good Question ! A Domestic Intelligence agency ? Perhaps , but , not likely , as of yet . better law

enforcement ? Definitely ! Beyond that , it is open to question .

.. One who knows this subject well is Cal – Berkeley law professor John Yoo . Professor Yoo served in George W. Bush ‘ s Department of Justice , at a very senior level , and was one of the primary authors of the U.S. policy towards treatment and detention of detainees captured on the battlefield of the War on Terror . The New Admin full of wusses does not change that fact .

.. quoting Professor Yoo , ” A law enforcement approach to terrorism ? ”

.. ” How is this a victory for traditional law enforcement? Two young brothers, lightly armed, killed several innocent civilians, wounded 170, killed an officer and wounded another, and shut down one of America’s great cities. We had a whole city trapped in its homes and paramilitary forces in its streets. Law enforcement alone means the nation lies vulnerable to attacks on soft targets and must expend enormous resources to catch the killers afterwards .”

.. A pre-emptive strategy based on intelligence and the use of force overseas seeks to prevent such attacks further from our shores. That option should be preferred by everyone compared to what we’ve seen in Boston these last five days.
