OTTAWA—It might strike the reader as odd that someone with so much invested in counterterrorism is here making the suggestion that we need to worry less about terrorism. After all, if we stopped spending so much time talking about it, wouldn’t that put me out of a job and undermine my regular column in The Hill Times? Would I have anything meaningful to say or write anymore? Perhaps not. Then again, as a ‘glass-half-full’ kind of guy, I also recognize that were this to happen I could actually retire and spend more time staring at the lake up at my Madawaska Highlands cottage.
