The alleged conspiracy by six Muslim extremists to attack Fort Dix, N.J., was thwarted, as this article notes, not by tanks and combat but by a citizen tip and old-fashioned police work and intelligence. That’s been the case in almost every major anti-terrorist success since Sept. 11.
The Fort Dix case is a reminder of how irrelevant our war in Iraq is to preventing domestic and worldwide terrorist plots against the United States.
