ABSTRACT
The author reflects on exploitation of terrorism issue to support political objectives which cost millions of dollars when translated to police and security services. He cites the chatter picked by the National Security Agency off an email never confirmed by human intelligence that al-Qaeda is preparing to commemorate the 9/11's 10th anniversary. The author argues that the call of the Obama administration for troops to stay in Iraq to defend against Iranian aggression will also cost millions.
