On Precursor Crimes

Just a quickie on precursor crimes. In The Washington Institute for Near East Policy's PolicyWatch/PeaceWatch Michael Jacobsen writes:

[Europe and America's] preventive strategy [regarding terrorism] has revolved around an increasingly aggressive law enforcement approach. In 2006 alone, for example, European authorities arrested a total of 260 terrorist suspects. Most of these individuals were charged not with plotting attacks, but with a variety of other terrorism-related offenses such as financing, recruiting, and facilitation.
