Anti-Terrorism Preparedness Requires Continual Vigilance

Being effectively prepared for an incident of terrorism is largely a matter of focus: recognizing that such a moment could occur and being prepared, as far as possible, to ward it off. Unfortunately, the American Thinker blog has a good negative example of this: “A classic Friday-afternoon document dump…incriminating the Bill Clinton administration in crippling anti-terror efforts.”

The Clinton Administration, it’s charged, “had bankrupted the intelligence community and refused to let the CIA emphasize anti-terrorism over other major priorities in the late 1990s, leaving the agency stretched too thin in the days ahead of the 2001 terrorist attacks, former (CIA) Director George J. Tenet said in a 2005 document declassified Friday (June 12).”
