Foriegn Policy and Terrorism

In the aftermath of the attempted bombing of Times Square there are two very important lessons to be learned. The would be bomber said that the reason he was motivated to try to set off a bomb is because the U.S. is killing civilians in Pakistan with our unmanned Predator drones. We need to accept that our foriegn policy may in fact manufacture terrorists.

A second lesson to be learned is that we can give people Miranda Rights and still gather useful information. Faisal Shahzad is a United States Citizen and when arrested as the law dictates he was read his Miranda Rights. He has been cooperative and has provided useful information related to terrorist cells. Because this information was obtained lawfully it will be admissable in court as evidence.
