This was fun. Thanks to MSNBC for the invite, and to the Morning Joe guest hosts for such a long and, I thought, substantive segment. My one regret is that my makeup doesn’t make me look as orange as a Jersey Shore cast member.

Also, I thought Richard Engel did a very good job of arguing for a purely counterterrorism approach to al-Qaeda. I hope I was coherent in my “demand-side security” response.
