Ron Suskind, "The One Percent Doctrine"

This afternoon on my KMOX show, I talked with Ron Suskind about the lessons learned from last week's terrorist threat, which he says was not thwarted because of monitoring phone calls or electronic surveillance. Rather, it was a tipster and good old-fashioned human intelligence that broke the case. I also asked him about whether we're safer today than before 9-11, the patience of Al Qaeda, and the breeding of new freelance terrorists.

Listen to the conversation here.

Suskind is the author of The One Percent Doctrine.
