Fear Not

Foreign Affairs Magazine asks: "Is there still a terrorist threat?"
Answer: Uh, no, not really.

Apparently, they're suggesting that the threat has been way overblown, and they even go so far as to suggest that 20 ugly guys in a cave in Pakistan aren't really going to be able to topple Western civilization. Blasphemes! Next they'll be telling us that jazz music isn't really destroying the American family through its lewd jungle rythms!

But, lest you think they're suggesting that the five-year-and-counting 'War Against the Boogeyman' has accomplished nothing...

"The massive and expensive homeland security apparatus erected since 9/11 may be persecuting some, spying on many, inconveniencing most, and taxing all to defend the United States against an enemy that scarcely exists."

You don't say.
