The Pentagon wants to create a huge new section to combat terrorism. Amongst the group’s jobs will be encouraging terrorist groups to act so they can be caught (isn’t that entrapment? And isn’t this worse than criminal entrapment because any number of innocent people could lose their lives if there’s a screw up?), keeping a reserve of retired intelligence experts to be called up during times of crisis and creating a ‘Red Team’ with analysts and authors who would dream up potential threats. The DEx comic features a former MI6 analyst pensioned off after being injured on duty. If there was a chance he might be called back at any time it could lead to other possible plots.
