The cost of paranoia

From The Economist... While the war may help al-Qaeda’s recruiting drive, it may not lead to any more of the terror network’s trademark spectacular attacks any time soon. These, it seems, tend to require long-term planning: the September 11th attacks, after all, were years in the making. Suicide bombers, or lone fanatics who disagree with America’s policies, are more of a worry. As Tom Ridge, America’s homeland-security chief, has said, the threat can be reduced, but it cannot be eliminated.
