Fighting Terrorism: It’s not what you think

The Rand Corp. just issued a report on winning the war against terrorism.  (How Terrorist Groups End)

And guess what?

Good old fashioned police work and politics ended terrorists groups in more than 80% of the cases studied.

I tried to put the Rand chart onto this site but couldn’t  figure out how, so click here to see the chart.

What does this mean for the current war on terrorism?

That’s what journalists are supposed to look into.

Many thanks to Boing Boing for bringing this to my attention. I sure didn’t see reports on this study in the MSM.
