What the terrorists may have in store for them

I found this article on CNN interesting. It is from retired Army General Barry McAffrey, whose correspondance with a West Point cadet went public. He gives insight as to the potential actions we will pursue against the terrorists and their supporters. This part is just an excerpt, the full article is at http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/10/03/ret.mccaffrey.war.plan/ , and makes really interesting reading.


He told the cadet, "We are going to
disrupt these people through preemptive
attack ... we will deceive them, we will
run psyops on them, at selected points
and times they will be killed suddenly, in
significant numbers, and without
warning."
"Tomahawk missiles, 2000 pound laser
guided weapons dropped from B2's or
F22's at very high altitude, remote
control, booby traps, blackmail and at
places, small groups of soldiers or
SEALs will appear in total darkness,
blow down the doors and kill them at
close range with automatic weapons and
hand grenades," the e-mail message
read.
McCaffrey went on to say: "We will find
their money and freeze it. We will arrest
their front agents. We will operate
against their recruiting and transportation functions. We will
locate their training areas and surveil or mine them. We will
isolate them from their families.
"We will try to dominate their communication function and
alternately listen, jam or spoof it. We will make their couriers
disappear. If we can find out how they eat, or play or receive
rewards, or where they sleep -- we will go there and kill them by
surprise."
