David Ignatius on MSNBC:

"There's a phrase that's heard among counter-terrorism professionals: 'left
of boom.' In other words, moving before the bomb goes off, before the
devastating attack takes place. You move left of it. You intervene early."


"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
