If you were a terrorist -- foreign or domestic, I'm ecumenical -- which is the more tempting target, the Olympics or the Democratic National Convention? China would definitely kill your ass, but you may have meant to blow yourself up anyway, and you can target citizens of the country you dislike the most today. Denver will have looser security and a town full of people who'll seek to understand why you hate them, but will the world acknowledge your greatness if all you do is take out a bunch of damn Americans? Plus, no matter how hard you try to brand yourself or your organization George W. Bush is going to get all the publicity for allowing it to happen.
