Clarke, Peter
December 2009
India Today;12/14/2009, p33
The author calls for new methods in global counterterrorism. He stresses the importance of transnational counter-terrorism to protect the public such as the prevention of the 2006 plot against Transatlantic airliners using liquid bombs. He suggests coordination and training of all involved agencies, information sharing among intelligence and law enforcement officers and use of technology in intelligence, security and investigations. He attributes the failure to fully destroy the al Qaeda to repetitive and predictable methods.
