SNIPPET: "If a major homegrown terrorist attack happens on U.S. soil in the coming years, 2009 will be looked at as the year when the warning signs were missed. According to the Rand Corporation, the U.S. has experienced 30 homegrown terrorism plots since 9/11. One-third of these occurred in 2009; a frightening spike that warrants more attention than it is currently being given by public officials.
The Obama Administration began its term by refusing to include terms like radical Islam as part of its lexicon. The Global War on Terrorism was alternatively called an overseas contingency operation or a campaign against extremists who wish to do us harm.
The Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, described terrorism as a man-caused disaster. When asked about not even mentioning the word terrorism in her first address to Congress, she said, That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear towards a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
The homegrown terrorist activity this year has startled the Obama Administration, which now is forced to privately conclude that the radicalization of American-Muslims is increasing."

“We can get you anything you need — at the best price and quality — all you need to do for us is one favor. Personally deliver one piece of merchandise — it is not contraband — to a customer in New York City for one million dollars commission — and we will never bother you again.”
— Organized Crime Boss, Speaking to a CIA Officer, former Soviet Union, March 1992
In 1946, Robert Oppenheimer was asked in a closed Senate hearing room “whether three or four men couldn’t smuggle units of an [atomic] bomb into New York and blow up the whole city.” Oppenheimer responded, “Of course it could be done, and people could destroy New York.” When a startled senator then followed by asking, “What instrument would you use to detect an atomic bomb hidden somewhere in a city?” Oppenheimer quipped, “A screwdriver [to open each and every crate or suitcase].” There was no defense against nuclear terrorism-and he felt there never would be.
Welcome to the 21st century. It has become man’s destiny to confront the new threats posed by groups who aspire to wield the power and influence previously accorded only to states. In such a world, acquiring weapons of mass destruction has become, as Osama bin Ladin stated in 1998, his duty.
