"There are just too many potential targets and too many different ways they can be attacked to successfully defend every target against every attack. Trying to do so would be a recipe for endless spending on more — and more intrusive and expensive, given our penchant to view technology as a silver bullet — security. ... Moreover, much of that spending would be wasted because the very nature of terrorism is to find a weakness and exploit it." (12/20/10)
