Time to put on our thinking caps on

The poor response at all levels of government to the Katrina disaster shows the need to rethink how we'll deal mass terrorism. No reason to believe the response to a chemical, biological or radiological attack would be any better.

I strongly recommend the BBC drama "Dirty War" which accurately portrays what is likely to happen in a dirty bomb attack on a major city. Although HBO still broadcasts the show from time to time, it's available for purchase.

"Dirty War" also underscores the need for a realistic interrogation strategy to extract information from terror suspects likely to possess information about a impending attack. Why should the lives of millions, and the economy, be placed at risk because we lack the common sense to be realistic?

The Constitution is not a SUICIDE PACT.
