McSnoop: Franchising the War Against Global Terror.
As long as Muslim dictators throughout the oil-rich Middle East continue to buy off imams who teach conspiracy theories and violence against non-Muslims, and the emergence of homegrown terrorist groups in the West is left unchecked, there is little hope for a secure future. Without a vast reformation movement within Islam, their religiosocial system will continue to flourish, which is why the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate predicts that terrorism will increase in the years ahead.
In the fight against terror, McSnoop offers an alternative to the militarism, unlawful detentions, and illegal wiretaps that have proved costly in blood and ...view middle of the document...

Rather than transform the FBI into an agency charged with the hunt for domestic terrorists and Al Qaeda-style operations, Bush should put them on Bathtub Patrol. Short on time, I continued the transcription:
Once a society encounters terrorism, whether Peru’s Shining Path, Japan’s Aum Shinrikyo, or Al Qaeda in America, the societal response evolves through a learning curve that nets three distinct phases: 1) conservative bellicosity with full public backing that is tempered by, 2) a liberal reaction to (governmental) overreaching, which, conservatives argue, borders on appeasement, followed by, 3) a tacit appeal to moderate Islamists to win the ideological argument over their nihilistic brethren. To date, these approaches have proved largely ineffective against an enemy with no negotiable objectives other than, perhaps, to inculcate the West with Sharia law—a draconian, immutable Islamic tract that, the jihadists contend, originates directly in the mind of God—or a complete withdrawal of the West’s presence and influence across the broad Middle East.
The Pentagon’s counterinsurgency manual FM 3-24/FMFM 3-24 states that “intelligence drives operations” and that “without good intelligence, a counterinsurgent is like a blind boxer.” Yet according to Richard H. Shultz, the director of international security studies at Tufts University, Fletcher School, the manual “provides no organizational blueprint for collecting such intelligence.”
Since the war on terror is now recognized as a war of intelligence, the West must initiate highly innovative counter-infiltration strategies. Within close-knit Muslim communities, however, terrorists protect their identities and activities, and continually exploit our lack of actionable intel.
As an alternative to the Free World’s flawed military response to terrorism, and as an adjunct to international covert operations, IT proposes McSnoop, an overt counterintelligence strategy that has the potential to 1) infiltrate terrorist cells, 2) thwart pending attacks, and 3) intimidate the enemy and create general mistrust and suspicion throughout all stages of terrorist activity, from recruitment, development, and procurement to disbursement, actualization, and assessment of tactical destruction.
Whether the target is a Muslim nation under military occupation by the West, such as Iraq or Afghanistan, or an open and free democratic society, terrorist factions and their influence across a broad spectrum of Muslim society may be represented by a series of concentric circles that can be associated with the colors of the spectrum: at the red-hot epicenter are the terror cells, insurgencies, or radical nihilists in the throes of plotting and implementing death and destruction. These are comprised of overseers, coconspirators, coordinators, facilitators, procurers, attackers, and suicide bombers. Next is a thin ring, ranging from orange to yellow, representing complicit supporters and sycophants. Further out, on a ring that...
