Just to be clear, that page is Frank's take on redefining the  
PdDefinitions page.  I don't think we ever came up with a final,  
agreed upon set of definitions, that's why I bring it up.  I think  
mostly there is agreement on the definitions, but there are some key  
differences.  You can see my attempt here (both on the bottom of the  
PdDefinitions page).


On that note, it would be good to see other people digesting this info  
and posted on that page.



Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war on  
terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
