13 YEARS AFTER 911, ARE WE SAFER? PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS ANNOUNCES NEW THREATS


Thirteen years after the terror attacks on September 11, 2001 claimed nearly 3,000 American lives, the group responsible for those attacks, al Qaeda, is a shadow of its former self, analysts say but that doesn't mean the U.S. can afford to rest easy, given a host of emerging threats ready to take up the jihadist banner.

A new battle against terror is at hand, as President Obama Wednesday night laid out a strategy to defeat the radical Islamic State, which took root in civil war-torn Syria, then spread to Iraq, where Obama had pulled out U.S. troops.

For the superstitious, this year’s unlucky 13th anniversary might be of greater concern than past years. They are correct, but for the wrong reasons. At no time since the original 9/11 attacks has there been such a diverse set of terrorist threats that might strike the West, and so much certainty about the intentions of the dozen or more jihadi terrorist groups scattered around the world. For Americans on Sept. 11, 2014, the question is not “Will al Qaeda attack us again?” Instead, it is “Which one of these terrorist groups will attack us?”

Last nights Presidential Address left people wondering 'what will we do you now'? As Obama authorizes to airstrike on Syria with "Strength and Results"
