why the terrorists have already won

Here’s the cover of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula english language magazine.

It brags that the scheme cost them only $4200 and:

… the work of “less than six brothers” over three months. “This supposedly ‘foiled plot,’ ” the group wrote, “will without a doubt cost America and other Western countries billions of dollars in new security measures.

That is what we call leverage.” …

NY Times

We can only speculate the next series of low cost failed terrorist plots designed to INSPIRE more expenditures by the American government.

This was linked from the best single article I’ve seen on how the USA is bungling their National security.
