Tell Us: Is America Safer Since the September 11 Attacks?

We want to know what you think. Tell us in the comment section.

Today we remember those who died in the September 11 attacks and their families. In the past 11 years much has changed, but are we any safer? 

The attacks served as the starting point for the War on Terror which sent millions of men and women into battle, drastic changes in security, economic affects, cultural and foreign policy changes. The day also marked the start of a manhunt, the arrests of several al-Quaeda members, and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden.

Today, we reflect on what happened on that horrific morning and all that has happened since.

We want to know what you think: Is America a safer place today?

Deanie, Rush Limbaugh may be filling your head with nonsense, but you seem to be panicking over nothing. Where are you seeing "thousands of home grown terrorists"? Pardon me, but no one I know has seen "drones over head". Why don't you look at other news sources before you come up with such false assertions like "Obama opens the borders for political gain". That is so ridiculous, it's laughable. Do you really think that the current unrest in the Middle East is due to President Obama? If you think that then your opinion of the power of the Presidency is far greater than reality. And if Mr. Romney comes in, what will he do, wave a magic wand and all those downtrodden people will suddenly be happy?

Nope.....there's still a HUGE hole at the airports. All we have to show is our boarding pass to get on the plane at the gate. I'm waiting for a terrorist to mug someone, take their boarding pass and VOILA....have a good trip!!!

Your ideas intrigue me. If I subscribe to your newsletter, will I be sent an aluminum hat to keep out Obama's mind-control rays or will I, instead, be sent instructions on how to craft my own? It should not be a problem as I am quite crafty and have recently purchased a new bottle of Elmer's School Glue. I prefer the School Glue over the standard White Glue. I find it adheres better and has a slightly sweeter taste.

Why would they do that? You still have to show a picture ID to get through security in the first place. Why would a terrorist buy a plane ticket, go through security then steal someone else's ticket? Paranoid delusions should either be plausible or entertaining. Try again please.
