Get this from a library! Is America safe?: terrorism, homeland security, and emergency preparedness. [Robert T Jordan; Don Philpott] -- Looks at terrorism threats in the twenty-first century, reviews the history of terrorism, and offers advice to Americans on how to prepare to respond to an attack. Since its passage following the Septem attacks, the Patriot Act has played a key part—and often the leading role—in a number of successful operations to protect innocent Americans from the deadly plans of terrorists dedicated to destroying America and our way of life.

  While America is stronger and more resilient as a result of a strengthened homeland security enterprise, terrorist threats persist and continue to evolve. Weapons of Mass Destruction The United States faces a rising danger from terrorists and rogue states seeking to use weapons of mass destruction. The role of ideology adds further complexity to the alleged relationship between religion and terrorism. Many in the Muslim community are quick to distance Islam from ideological variants that preach violence. The most common refrain now heard is that terrorism has no religion.

Is America Safe? | As potential targets, such as military facilities, symbols of democracy, government buildings, and infrastructure are "hardened" against possible terrorist attack, terrorists will shift to softer targets: churches, schools, malls, mass entertainment centers, high-rise apartments, transportation centers, and energy facilities. Tucker Carlson would like you to know that white supremacy is “not a real problem in America.” Four days after a white nationalist targeted Latinos in a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso.
