An anonymous reader writes: New York Times blogger Steven D. Levitt has raised a few eyebrows with his blog post, 'If You Were a Terrorist, How Would You Attack?'. He asks, 'what I would do to maximize terror if I were a terrorist with limited resources'. Levitt's terrorist plan is based on the Washington D.C. sniper attacks of 2002. He also invites readers to come up with better ideas: 'I presume that a lot more folks who oppose and fight terror read this blog than actual terrorists. So by getting these ideas out in the open, it gives terror fighters a chance to consider and plan for these scenarios before they occur.' Others argue that this is simply giving terrorists dangerous new ideas.
