This is actually not true. In order for anyone to get world class
explosives, they would need to be well connected and to have access to
explosives, that is, someone will have to supply them. Among these network
of terrorists, some of them deal with supplying explosives, some with
aquiring them, some with planning, some with other financial aspects. Like
any other military (or large organization), they have a few departments.
Most of the people are rather sane, and work in a more or less normal
manner to do their "job". The ones carrying out the missions are the vast
minority of such an organization.
Intelligence gathering should and must be at the preliminary stage, by
infiltrating such organizations, in any possible way. An operation of the
size the US witnessed involved many people, at all levels of the
organization. If the organization was well covered by the CIA/???, then
the information would have reached them long time before the actual hit.
This is what intelligence is all about.
Get your shit straight!
