Too much secrecy helps terrorists
CSIS: Overreacting to risk means we're 'giving in to fear'

Ian MacLeod, The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Saturday, January 27, 2007


Canada's spy master, of all people, is warning that excessive government secrecy and draconian counterterrorism measures will only play into the hands of terrorists.

"The response to the terrorist threat, whether now or in the future, should follow the long-standing principle of 'in all things moderation,' " Jim Judd, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said in a recent Toronto speech. >---More--->

"The response must be calibrated carefully so as to optimally protect Canadians and Canadian interests while containing an often natural disposition of giving in to fear and panic."
