A Debate about Connecting the Dots and the Christmas Plot

The last major news story of 2009 was the near-catastrophe on Christmas Day on Northwest Airlines Flight 253.  Debate about the lessons learned from this failed attack continues, and will continue for some time.  

This weekend, I was glad to be invited to join this debate as a participant in the new “Forum” feature over at the online Harvard National Security Law Journal.  Paul Rosenzweig, a former deputy assistant secretary for policy at the Department of Homeland Security, started us off with a short, op-ed style piece: Connecting the Dots and the Christmas Plot.  Two short responses followed yesterday and today.  The first response is by Nathan Sales, now a law professor at the George Mason School of Law and also a former deputy assistant secretary for policy at DHS (accessible here).  The second response is by me (accessible here).
