Help NY Times Brainstorm for Terrorists

Yes, a blog author for The New York Times wants attention and asks readers to offer suggestions to the terrorists on how best to attack the United States. Americans have ingenuity and are practical, so the terrorists might appreciate a little American know-how.

If You Were a Terrorist, How Would You Attack?

By Steven D. Levitt

...Hearing about (the new TSA) rules got me thinking about what I would do to maximize terror if I were a terrorist with limited resources. ...I’m sure many readers have far better ideas. I would love to hear them. ...So by getting these ideas out in the open, it gives terror fighters a chance to consider and plan for these scenarios before they occur.

Yeah, right. The New York Times and college professors writing for them are so well known for wanting to fight terrorists. Do you recall the image from this post?

The author praised his father, Dr. Michael Levitt, in his article. His dad specializes in the study and treatment of flatulence. He couldn't have made a better producer of it than his own son.

Now, we could ask people to think how the terrorists should attack The New York Times, but it's unlikely that terrorists would hurt one of their biggest allies.

No, actually I liked this. It's not like both the terrorists and counterterrorists don't do this sort of thing all the time. The risk that we'll give the terrorists an idea they haven't thought of is far outweighed by the derivative information it gives to our planners. To the terrorists, the noise in this info will be hard to separate from signal. To our planners, what people provide as noise is actually useful information.

It sounds worrisome at first, but it's got value.

AVI, while it may have value, it has more of a downside risk than upside potential. There's a lot better ways to use American brains than getting ideas that the terrorists may not have considered.
