It’s being done right

Their names are difficult to pronounce, especially for Americans who are used to Tom, Dick and Harry. But, thanks to our FBI, Marwan Othman el-Hindi, Wassim I. Mazloum, and Mohammad Zaki Amawi, all legal residents of the U.S., are behind bars for plotting to do some bad stuff to us, as in U.S. For those of you decrying the use of phone tapping U.S. citizens and visitors who are suspected of dastardly deeds, what would you suggest we do to ferret out these bad guys?

“O.K., all of you who are on U.S. soil who are plotting to blow up Lodi and kill the President, please step forward. O.K., I really mean it now, I want all of you to go to your local police stations and give up. O.K., if you don’t surrender within the next 10 minutes, we’re going to deny your social security payments for a year. There, that ought to help us find these hard core terrorists.”
