That’s both kinds of intelligence–military intelligence and the kind between our ears. That’s what I told
host P.J. Maloney on KQV Radio in Pittsburgh a few minutes ago. It’s natural to want to hit back at ISIS after atrocities like the one in Paris on Friday, in Beirut the day before and, some say, the Russian plane crash in Egypt’s Sinai (though I still doubt that was an attack). But military action in Syria and Iraq won’t stop extremist Muslim attacks in the West. ISIS isn’t built like that. It will be harder–but the West has to get inside the local cells and leadership, wherever they are, and stop the attacks as they’re being planned. Bombing and other forms of military intervention will be counterproductive. I explain it all in four minutes of radio time here.
