Jonah and the Wail

Let me get this straight: a foiled terrorist bombing is the same as a successful terrorist bombing—only worse?
Anyway, the irony is that from a policy standpoint, it seems to me that security officials have to view things like the failed London bombing as basically no different than a successful bombing. But because the bombing failed, the policy options to security officials are far narrower precisely because the bombing failed and therefore didn't rouse the sort of political reaction it might otherwise have.
Yes, if only...

The real irony is that Jonah titled his post "Dogs That Don't Bark" when he clearly should have called it "That Dog Don't Hunt".
