It is just a matter of time before we are hit with a completely unexpected attack.

If you look at disruption of business in NY and DC, it would very easy to shut down the economy in NY and DC.

I am sure we will be equally suprised by they're next attack.

If someone was to make a guess, how many (hundreds/thousands) extremist terrorists are already here working on a attack?

What do you call a "home grown "terrorist exactly?

Have you heard the saying, "One mans terrorist, is another mans freedom fighter" ?

what if some "patriot" tired of the US Constituition being used as toilet paper and civil rights/freedoms being slowly eroded away cracks and goes and bombs the White House or a Tax office or something like that for a just cause?

yes, if he kills people he is a murderer, I bet the media wont call him a terrorist unless he has a beard, is middle eastern of origin.

what if he just manages to cut the power to a city without killing anyone? still a terrorist?

You watch the Feds try and crack down on patriots in the future!

If I remember correctly, it was military grade anthrax that targeted reporters and other influential people who spoke out against the immediate American war plans to invade the Middle East after 9/11.
