    I think so. Think of the underwear bomber, and the surveillance apparatus. I think his administration does it's best. I don't believe you can realistically stop all of them.

    Am certain this will end up as the typical hyperpartisan troll thread but how much freedom is one willing to give up to be safe?

    It would certainly make things easier for law enforcement if we all had 7 PM curfews and none of us traveled overseas.

    How safe do you want to be? There are far more traffic fatalities that deaths by terrorists in the USA but I don't see anybody lobbying for mandatory helmets for all auto passengers.

    Not surprising that some lower the bar when there's an incompetent administration in the White House.

    Al Qaeda underwear bomber who was able to ignite the fuse but the kicker charge failed to set off the main charge.

    AL Qaeda attack at Fort Hood. (13 killed, 32 wounded.)

    Al Qaeda attack on a military recruiting station in Little Rock, AK. (1 killed, 1 wounded.)

    Al Qaeda attack on American consulate, Benghazi, libya. (4 Americans killed. POTUS refuses to do #### and goes up stairs and prepares to fly to Vegas to claim Al Qaeda is on the run and is being decimated and also blame it on a Youtube video.)

    Muslim terrorist bombings in Boston, Mas. (3 killed, 264 wounded.)

    Liberal attack on the Washington Navy Yard. (12 killed)

    I want to be kept as safe as we were under the Bush Administration where we had zero attacks after 9/11.

    As I gather ...helmets help NOT.
    We need much better driver training and much better highways.
    I think that there are cases where the safety/security is excessive...

    I just don't think terrorism is a real threat any longer. Not to the United states anyway. They had their hit and it was 12 years ago. The terrorists woke a sleeping giant and were crushed because of it.
