In talking with folks associated with terrorists, probably terrorists themselves, they always talk about aviation attacks with almost reverence. To them it is the target that gets the most bang for the buck. I have been told that we have spent so much on Aviation Security, that each time they mount an attack it is a slap in the face to the West, saying see they can not even protect aviation, even though they keep upping the costs each time we attack. In one report last year in a magazine AQ publishes, they touted the cost of one attack at less than three thousand dollars, and the West spent over 3 billion to counter, the attack even though the attack was not successful. They point to the fact they can make it so expensive the West will bankrupt itself trying to counter them.
