Law Enforcement Again Successful Against Terrorism

As a discussion forum linking here already noted today, the arrest of six men in a plot to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, is more proof that Kerry was right on fighting terrorism. During the 2004 campaign, Kerry argued that fighting terrorism was “far less of a military operation and far more of an intelligence-gathering law enforcement operation. Republicans attacked him, but Kerry has repeatedly been proven right. The major successful actions against terrorism have been the results of police and intelligence action–not even requiring illegal wiretaps or torture.

This is not to say that law enforcement and intelligence are the only tools. Democrats such as John Kerry have recommended a multi-faceted approach. Sometimes military action is necessary, but it is there the failures of the Republicans are most obvious, as when they failed to send in US troops and allowed Osama bin Laden to escape at Tora Bora.
