ABSTRACT
The article comments on the statement of U.S. President George W. Bush that there was no terrorist attack in the country since September 11, 2001 (9/11). It notes that 9/11 has changed the views of the nation that such attacks are only isolated incidents and their prevention does not need large resources. But it opposes the use of defensive approach through attacking nations that allegedly support terror instead of a comprehensive one. It hails the homeland security strategy which is based on reorganization of the federal government and war on terrorism.
