    Terrorism is an issue... a law enforcement issue. We are never going to eliminate risk, just as we couldn't get rid of the anarchists who killed William McKinley. It took changed circumstances, cultural change, time, for that particular threat to dry up.

    Should the US pursue intelligent policies to follow and interdict terrorists and terrorist organizations abroad?  Of course. The US, including the FBI, should track and interdict terrorists in the US, including right-wing domestic terrorists.  No doubt.

    But it's a law enforcement issue.  We have federal courts, let's use them.  This is nothing so new or so extreme that we don't have the tools to manage it without further eroding civil liberties.
