“The brutal challenge for U.S. intelligence, [psychologist and former CIA case officer Marc] Sageman said, is that ‘you don’t know who’s going to be a terrorist’ anymore. Citing the 15 men who killed 190 passengers [in Madrid, Spain] on March 11 [2004] in synchronized bombings of the Spanish rail system, he said ‘if you had gone to those guys in Madrid six months prior, they’d say *We’re not terrorists,* and they weren’t. Madrid took like five weeks [to plan] from inception.’ ”
