    The Muslim world is throwing in with Hezbollah, now. Al Qaeda is yesterday's news. Five years ago, Bin Laden was a rock star in the Middle east.

    Now, he's Lance Bass.

    Bit, prior to 9/11, you think the west would have had the intelligence resources aimed at Pakistan necessary to prevent the planned airline attacks?

    Excellent Point. Security now, awareness now, counter-action now, intelligence now are ALL better than they were pre-9/11. It may FEEL more dangerous because we are aware of the situation much more clearly today, and have more to "get through" in travel and the like, but that is perception, not truth.

    A man swimming with Sharks who's never seen them before may feel pretty safe too....till one of those sharks bites him. But once bitten, if that man wears a suit of anti-shark armor, he may still FEEL less safe, because he knows what the sharks he's swimming with can do, but in truth he is SAFER from those sharks, because of his armor...and because of his awareness.

    Yesterday is a perfect example of how we are.

    The sharing of intelligence, not only within our country, but with our allies. Within hours DHS coordinated info with state and local officials. Governors had security at airports ramped up. Just the fact this attack was thwarted proves that we are safer.

    Safer doesn't mean completely safe. The President didn't say "we're completely safe". There are still jihadists, democrats and liberals among us.

    Before I get the lecture about stereotyping liberals, just check out what the prominant ones are saying today. Doesn't sound like they stand united in the WoT.
