SPOOKY NEWS, and excellent reporting,

SPOOKY NEWS, and excellent reporting, from Tim Dunlop:

I mentioned the other day being at a dinner with a Congressional chief-of-staff. One thing he said was this: our intelligence tells us that recruiting for terror organisations has gone up by 300% since the Iraq war. To which I replied, gee, that's one stat I haven't the Administration mention lately. To which he replied, placing his finger on his chin, um, maybe that was confidential.

It likely increased after the liberation of East Timor, too. Terrorists hate good things.
