Why Terror Works

Here's an excerpt/synopsis from Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz's book "Why Terror Works"
(An aside: I read the book this summer, and it is an interesting and thought provoking read).

I recommend reading the article (and the book) as it spells out what we must do to win the war on terror.

Update: Sept. 18th at 6:30--Dershowiz will be speaking at Harvard (at Science Center D) about his new book: The Case For Israel. The first 25 students to walk in the door will get a free copy! Students with ID are Free! Non-Students: $5
