A great sample of the 'movie plot' way in which 'terrorism' is seen and handled: a Vancouver police computer crime investigator has warned about how the wifi network in the city can be abused by terrorists at the 2010 winter olympics. Yes, three years from now. Reading the original article in the Vancouver Sun makes it an almost funny story (from this distance) but the saddening part is that this detective is serious and the newspaper seems to take his story serious. Bruce Schneier has written a good response about it Movie Plot Threat in Vancouver. One good comment:
I think the Vancouver Police crime investigator watches too much "24".
