This was supposed to be a reflection on 9/11 and what weve learned in the decade since what weve done right, what weve done wrong. It would be foolish, though, to waste time retracing our steps when the lesson is simple and the threat that we will unlearn it is immediate and concrete. What weve learned is that the only protection from jihadist terror lies in good intelligence. And what were seeing is an attempt to re-establish pre-9/11 roadblocks to intelligence-gathering in the very place where, as 9/11 painfully proved, the threat to us is most profound.
Commissioner Ray Kellys police department has pioneered a counterterrorism strategy that has safeguarded New York City, the jihads No. 1 target, since jihadists destroyed the twin towers ten years ago tomorrow. Yet, as my column last weekend related, Kelly and the NYPD continue to be targets of an Associated Press smear campaign, bringing down the same hidebound indictment Islamist organizations and the Lawyer Left trot out against any counterterrorism strategy worth having: that it means profiling, domestic spying, and Islamophobia.
This week, that campaign continued with APs latest installment, wherein correspondent Adam Goldman bewails the special attention the NYPD has paid to mosques and what he preciously describes as Muslim student groups.
Not surprisingly, I caught some flak for contending that the AP is dutifully carrying water for the Obama administration, which has urged a strategy for combatting terrorism that is very different from the NYPDs a strategy that resists even using the word terrorism.

What’s ‘foolish’ is spending time and resources trying to sniff out conservative white males - while radical Muslims plot to destroy our country.
In the last two years 126 people have been indicted for terrorism. NOT ONE OF THEM WAS A MEMBER OF THE TEA PARTY.
Not one was Christian.
Not one was a white middle class man.
Not one was an upper class white woman ( as shown in a Homeland Security Public Service Announcement )
EVERY PERSON INDICTED for terrorism in the United States in the last two years was Muslim.
If we get hit this week with a dirty bomb by radical Muslims - there needs to be an investigation...
If money was diverted from investigating radical Muslims BECAUSE BIG SIS wanted to go after political enemies rather than the REAL people who want to kill us, there’s an impeachment coming.
We are doomed if we do not take issues head on, with PC be damned. And, yet. . .it is not happening folks.
