    There have been two terrorist attacks on the United States in less than a year. The fact that they happened is frightening to many Americans, but that is not all that is frightening. In many ways, the reaction of government officials to the attacks was also troubling. It was the same for both attacks. Initially, there were those in government who looked for the cause of the attack at home, and it found something about America — something actually important — to blame for each attack. Perhaps they were just in denial, or perhaps they actually meant it — it's hard to tell. They were wrong.
