To President Bush:

You need to keep me safe from the terrorists, but don't you dare do the things necessary to keep me safe from the terrorists !!! Damn you Bush--you search for evidence by searching for evidence instead of divining it from the air !
So there are now two basic templates in terrorism media coverage:

Template A (note to editors: to be used after every terrorist atrocity): "Angry family members, experts and opposition politicians demand to know why complacent government didn't connect the dots."

Template B (note to editors: to be used in the run-up to the next terrorist atrocity): "Shocking new report leaked to New York Times for Pulitzer Prize Leak Of The Year Award nomination reveals that paranoid government officials are trying to connect the dots! See pages 3,4,6,7,8, 13-37."
Read the whole thing.
