"Good. We're beginning to pick apart this particular memeplex."

And then hopefully one day we'll get around to picking apart and dismantling the environment which allows this memeplex to thrive. Since we already KNOW how we can starve it of its oxygen, wasting more time on "picking it apart" is something we might consider taking up in an academic seminar. I'm all for academic seminars, just as long as I keep in mind that focusing on the niceties of al-Qaeda's ideology outside of focusing on ourselves and how we have contributed to terrorism has no moral significance whatsoever.
