If I am not in error, I believe the French have several successes in this
arena. I seem to recall a story that an Al Qeada linked group was rolled up
by the French in the immediate aftermath of 11 Sept. 01. This group (if my
memory serves) had targeted the Cathedral in Strasbourg. The actions by the
French prevented this attack.

Interestingly enough, French security has been very busy of late, and
surprisingly effective. Perhaps some lessons learned can be got from them .

'Linked to Zarqawi'
Europe - France French counterterrorism agents on Thursday arrested three
suspects believed to have "indirect links" to al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu
Musab al-Zarqawi, a police spokeswoman said.
Note, that having "indirect links" can get you arrested in France. In the
U.S., we are still arguing over aspects of the Patriot Act that makes one
wonder whether we are really serious about this whole thing. Perhaps French
law is different. What do you think?
