"The terrorists are deliberately focusing on people who have legitimate Western European passports, who don't appear to have records as terrorists," Chertoff told lawmakers. "I have a good degree of confidence we can catch people coming in. But I have to tell you ... there's no guarantee. And they are working very hard to slip by us."THAT WOULD BE BAD. I HOPE WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO PREVENT IT.
Chertoff and other intelligence officials have delivered similar warnings before, and he offered no new information about specific threats or an imminent attack.
Chertoff reiterated his concern that terrorists could sneak radiological material into the country on small boats or private aircraft. This material could be used to create an explosive device known as a "dirty bomb."

- AND AN ATTACK BECOMES MORE LIKELY.
- PLUS, BY APPEASING THE BAD-GUYS WE'D ONLY ENCOURAGE THEM.
