London: Check Every Threat With Extreme Prejudice

Jeff Jacoby discusses how British Intelligence announced there was a reduced threat of a London terror attack 3 weeks prior to 7/7. With intelligence errors likely to be common (after all we are just people and the data analysts rely on is complex and disparate), he asks:

Which kind of intelligence failure is better — the kind that badly understates a threat, such as the one in London, or the kind that overstates a threat, such as the insistent warnings before the invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein was armed with weapons of mass destruction?

Millions of British wish the authorities gave the intelligence pointing towards a threat higher significance. And Gitmo captives deserve immediate trials exactly why?
