    Google I think is just too hard for partisans to use.

    Took me 5 seconds to find Wikipedia's list of terror attacks by year. Plenty of US ones post 9/11

    While the other 48 % didn't buy Janet (Big Siss) Napolitano's explanation for the Obama administration that "everything worked out as planned." Even though an Al Qaeda terrorist who was on the watch list was allowed to board the plane. Was able to light the fuse but the only reason the plane didn't blow up was because the kicker charge failed to set off the main charge.

    48 % of us didn't buy that the Fort Hood terrorist attack was just "violence in the work place" when the shooter is yelling "Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar!" and was also exchanging e-mails with Al Qaeda in Yemen.

    48 % of us didn't buy Obama's lies that Al Qaeda was "on the run and is being decimated" and then blames the Al Qaeda attack on the consulate in Benghazi on a You Tube video because we are smarter and know that demonstrators don't bring heavy anti aircraft machine guns and mortars to a demonstration that over a You Tube video.
    Your words hold no power. You will have to deal with Obama for another 3.5 years. Sorry!

    2007 October 26: A pair of improvised explosive devices were thrown at the Mexican Consulate in New York City. The fake grenades were filled with black powder, and detonated by fuses, causing very minor damage. Police were investigating the connection between this and a similar attack against the British Consulate in New York in 2005.[47]


    2008 February: In the first reported incident of animal-rights extremists physically assaulting the family members of animal researchers, six masked activists attempted to force their way into the home of a University of California, Santa Cruz, researcher and injured the researcher's husband.[48][49]


    2008 March 3: Four multimillion-dollar show homes place in Woodinville, Washington, are torched. The Earth Liberation Front is suspected.[50]


    2008 March 6: A homemade bomb damaged a Recruiting Office in Times Square.[51] In June 2013 The FBI and New York City police offered a $65,000 reward for information in the case and revealed that ammunition used for the bomb is the same as is used in the Iraq and Afghanistan war zones.[52]


    2008 May 4: Multiple pipe bombs exploded at 1:40 am at the Edward J. Schwartz United States Courthouse in San Diego causing "considerable damage" to the entrance and lobby and sending shrapnel two blocks away, but causing no injuries. The F.B.I. is investigating links between this attack and an April 25 explosion at the FedEx building also in San Diego.[53]


    2008 August 2, August 3 University of California-Santa Cruz molecular biologist David Feldheim's home was firebombed. A car belonging to another researcher from that university was destroyed by a firebomb in what is presumed to be related. FBI is investigating incidents as domestic terrorism related to animal rights groups.[54][55]

    Yeah. I didn't even talk about the rest around the world, including areas where US citizens and troops were targeted.

    Navy (is once again wrong as usual) on his claim. Remember, whatever Navy says or predicts, the opposite will happen.

    Except for the anthrax attacks.

    EDIT: I see someone already beat me to it. Honestly, sometimes it's like these people live on another planet.

    I want to be kept as safe as we are, if we exclude inconvenient attacks. Limiting it to after 9/11 is ****ing hilarious. Just ignore the elephant in the room...

    Oh, I'm not afraid of them, I have no problem killing them, I just don't think we should be going after them, then spending billions putting their nations back together better than before, so they can attack us again. That's all we do and it's stupid.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
