Here’s a painful truth: Nearly 15 years after 9/11, US counterterror efforts failed to thwart the Orlando attacker. As they failed to prevent San Bernardino, Calif., Garland, Texas. Boston. Fort Hood . . .
And yet, in every one of those cases, the feds had their chance. Is something hobbling federal counterterror efforts?
Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.
