Does any one know anything about Mr. Jeffrey Goldberg?  His OpEd appears
in todays (sept 9, 08) New York Times.  The article's theme is that
number one threat to the US is a fissile device being detonated within
the US.  In fact he believes it is paramount above health care, the
economy and just about everything else facing the country at this time.
He states that the US should be striving to be pre-emptive to what he
believes is an 'inevitable attack'.

Oh, that's quite funny, and absolutely true.
Also, in response to Howard, I have to say that the fact that there have
been other attacks in the U.S. is no proof that anything we've done has
effective.  I could as easily say that the palm trees in my back yard
effective tiger repellents, because I haven't ever had a tiger in my
back  yard.

SDI is  actually a pretty good analogy.  It works, but only if there is
one missile at a time and we know its coming and what its trajectory
be. Detecting nukes at the border would be effective under  similar
circumstances: If we know the terrorist is coming, when he's coming  and
where, it will be no problem to identify the nuke he's  carrying.
