I don't know. I don't think anyone outside the highest level of the government knows EXACTLY how homeland security is succeeding. But the fact of the matter is that there have been no terrorist attacks since 9/11. Perhaps the terrorists just haven't tried to attack us, or perhaps our government and all the reforms have made a difference. It's anyone's guess...

I'm guessing its just escaped your memory for a brief moment, but there was the anthrax mailings,
the Shoe Bomber,
the Maryland Sniper, the Smileyface Bomber, and the WV/Ohio Sniper(s) that took place after 09/11/01 on U.S. soil.
The Shoe Bomber incident was a foreign terrorist attack which was only prevented from successfully completing due to the actions of civilian passengers on the flight it took place on.
No government action was even taken in that case until after it had been stopped.
