Ten Experts Tell Us How To Avoid The Next Catastrophe: What Say You?

Any one else out there tired of the fifth anniversary barrage of Nine Eleven retrospectives? Here's an different slant on the subject: The NY Times invited ten authors to tell us what they think.

I have not had time to scour these articles, but I thought I would toss the link here and have at it when I have some more spare time. Have a gander and tell us what you think are ways for us to avoid the next terrorst catastrophe:
The Op-Ed page asked 10 people with experience in security and counterterrorism to answer the following question: What is one major reason the United States has not suffered a major attack since 2001, and what is the one thing you would recommend the nation do in order to avoid attacks in the future?

The only thing I can think of is the one thing that this government is loathe to try: Actually do what bin Laden claims he wants: Break our dependence on Middle Eastern oil and then evacuate the Muslim countries.

The irony is that this is not what bin Laden really wants. Without the boogeyman of the US, he has no rallying cry. Without our presence, he'll be reduced to preying on more moderate muslims who will eventually tire of the death and destruction Al Qaeda brings.

It is also ironic that Bush could never consider this, because he has need to keep us fearful as well, that is why we stay without actually trying to catch bin Laden.
