On security needs

I don't have too much to add about the successful raid on an apparent terrorist cell that hasn't been discussed already. But it's worth noting that the issue had nothing at all to do with the immigration issues that CSIS is currently trying to push; and contrary to government plans last fall, it didn't require massive instrusions into Canadians' communications in order to enable CSIS to find and neutralize any threat.

Update: See Rusty Idols and My Blahg for more discussion of how the operation represents a victory for law enforcement rather than extralegal intrusions into the lives of Canadians.
