No matter what happens, be afraid

So if we let terrorists run around loose, we can expect attacks against our lives, property, and interests.

And if we capture terrorists and they become ill while rotting in our jails, we can expect...well, much the same thing.

How about if we just kill them instead of capturing them? Would that endear us to their survivors? Probably not.

So I guess the message behind the FBI's Omar Abdel-Rahman warning - well in advance of any actual intelligence - is "be afraid no matter what the hell happens."

Useful. Okay. Got it.
