Mark Steyn, as usual has another beauty. This one is on some of the many side benefits of the war on terror that haven't gotten much attention, and how we were told that you can't wage war against a phenomenon like terrorism.

But here's the interesting thing. Pace the historian, it seems you can wage war against a phenomenon. If the "war on terror" is aimed primarily at al-Qaida and those of similar ideological bent, it seems to have had the happy side-benefit of discombobulating various non-Islamic terrorists from Colombia to Sri Lanka.

This isn't because these fellows are the administration's priority right now, but rather because it's amazing what a little light scrutiny of international wire transfers can do.
