INTERESTING FOLLOWUP on the John Fund column mentioned below:

The FBI’s top counterterrorism official harbors lots of concerns: weapons of mass destruction, undetected homegrown terrorists and the possibility that old-fashioned mobsters will team up with al-Qaida for the right price.

Though there is no direct evidence yet of organized crime collaborating with terrorists, the first hints of a connection surfaced in a recent undercover FBI operation. Agents stopped a man with alleged mob ties from selling missiles to an informant posing as a terrorist middleman.

The story’s a bit thin on specifics, but it’s something to watch. Of course, one thing that would drastically reduce the danger of this kind of thing would be to end the drug war . . . .
