Hardly novel. But again, it's for the sake of believing some line from the the war on terror and the essay points made by a very important journalist, Peter Bergen. Bergen discusses the merits of the Predator drone assassination campaign in Af-Pak for The New Republic. To that end he uses as a lead example, a man named 'Abu Khabab,' allegedly a fellow who trained hundreds of terrorists on how to make ricin, one who was eventually killed by a drone attack. While a drone killed the man, there's no significant evidence he was an expert in WMD. And quite a bit to the contrary. So, naturally, Bergen earns an emphatic DD takedown, and you can read it in the directory over here.

Any comments on this article on : It's not clear to me how a terrorist is suppose to lug around a bunch of lethal material without getting harmed themselves. Is this plausable?

Yeah, I've read it. 200,000 Curies of an alpha and gamma emitter, cesium-137, in terrorist hands, without any one of the group getting singed. Judy Tenuta, in stentorian voice: Hey, it could happen!

Probably won't get to it until Monday or Tuesday at the Wordpress primary site.
