Citizens an Early Warning System for Terrorism

An editorial in the Philly Inquirer on how you can help prevent terrorism. Here's a teaser:

The Internet is a vast battleground in the war on terror; law enforcement doesn’t have the resources to keep track of all of the potential threats. And a vigilant network of online tipsters deserves credit for monitoring people like LaRose, and in some cases turning them in.....
