Smart Bombers: Do Universities Breed Terrorists?

LONDON -- In the aftermath of the Christmas Day bombing attempt, our nation is once again grappling with how best to protect itself against terrorist attacks. So far, the U.S. government has been directing its resources towards things like airport security and strengthening the government in Yemen, a new hotbed for al-Qaeda.

But such pronouncements, rather than aiding America's struggle against al-Qaida and other terrorist groups, would weaken it. Next week, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a hearing to examine the Fort Hood shootings. This sort of investigation could prove valuable if it reveals how someone could kill 13 people in a heavily guarded Army base. But committee members should avoid using the hearing, as Sen. Joe Lieberman...
