Terrorism and the US

There is a consistent assertion seen in the media that the United States has not been the victim of terrorism at home since the 9-11 attacks (including the anthrax incidents at about the same time), although there have been thwarted attempts.  While I don't dispute that there have not been any additional attacks on the scale of 9-11, that doesn't mean that there is no terrorism.  It may simply mean that we aren't recognizing it as terrorism.  The sniper attacks in and around Washington, DC are a good example.  The media treated that as a criminal act rather than a terrorist attack.  Alphecca has more evidence that Al Qaeda's operational capability in America has been sufficiently degraded that their operatives are lost in the noise of common street crime.
