Paying the Bills

So, the feds don't want to reimburse DC for $12M in security expenses for the coronation, I mean, inauguration, but they have found $12M for a think thank at University of Maryland to figure out why people become terrorists.

Maybe we can help them and free up some of that money for DC. Some hypotheses we might want to look at:

People become terrorists because they they see the US supporting repressive regimes (Saddam Hussein, the Taliban) and then bombing the hell out of their countries when we change our minds.

People become terrorists when we prop up their kleptomaniac government (oh, say, Saudi Arabia) because we like their oil.

People become terrorists because they hate freedom. Nah, that's too vague and stupid - nobody could take that seriously.

Sigh.
