Phony terrorists

Professor Torture himself, John Yoo, is advocating that the United States set up a phony terrorist organization in order to assist in fighting the 'war on terror'. I thought the United States already had such an operation. I think it's called something like 'al Qaeda'. By the way, advocating some kind of intelligence operation in a newspaper article when the author has lots of ways to suggest it to the proper authorities through the regular channels is itself evidence that the article is intended to do something different than what it suggests.
