I suppose we should be reassured that at least some of the terrorist cells uncovered by the FBI are not very bright.

One of those described by John Miller (Law enforcement, American Style, September, 14, 2006. A27) was a group of "three men who had conspired to travel to Iraq and attack American forces there."

I'd have thought the indigenous attackers in Iraq did not need much help from American sympathizers!
