I'd tick off a list of all of the attacks starting with the 1993 WTC bombing/cyanide gas attack; both foreign interests and domestic attacks.

Everyone seems lulled into a false sense of security because the domestic attacks have yielded few casualties (the Tampa teen kamikaze died a suicide with some financial damage, the LAX shooter didn't kill a lot of people, the DC sniper duo may have killed more people than in just the DC area but their terror game did more to scare people than put them at physical risk). Then there are the averted attacks that we know about... Robert Reid's shoe bomb would have killed the occupants of that plane and would have led the bodycount for post-911 attacks. We did have another plane that blew up "mysteriously". Somehow I don't think we will be informed of just how close some of the islamofascists came to pulling off more attacks in America. It might embolden some to be more committed and it might tip off some others to be more careful in who they talk to.

The WTC attack on September 11th was far from the first domestic strike by islamofascist terrorists and it was not even the only attack that day. This is not to minimize the impact of the WTC attack; it is to wake people up to the fact that we were not safe and that we are still at risk.

No kidding! Or even the scale of attacks on that day itself.
