The last line sums it up well - terrorism isn't a problem you fix, it's a problem you manage. I think the only complaint I have about this book is it's filled with the jargon of the CT professions. You know, a deputy undersecretary of whatever talking about how you've got to "synergize the boots on the ground with the hearts and minds while drinking three cups of tea" and all that. I suppose it's accurate; just seems annoying.
