During lunch on September 13, 2001, a former top British intelligence officer said to CIA Chief of Clandestine Operations in Europe, Tyler Drumheller: ” ‘You need to learn from our history,’ …’We decided to turn the terrorists’ tactics back on them. For a time, it worked. It stopped the immediate attacks. But watch out,’ he warned. ‘It’s dangerous. It makes you the bad guys. And when it gets to court–and in your society, just like ours…every one of these guys will get off.’ ”
