We’re passing along Time magazine’s listing of “an unprecedented surge in terror ‘events’ on U.S. soil” in 2009. Time’s alarm may seem surprising, but most of the plots were foiled and may have escaped your notice for that reason.
Rand Corporation expert Brian Jenkins figures, Time reports, that “more terrorist threats were uncovered in the U.S. during 2009 than in any year since 2001.”
What’s the “event” trend mean? Your call. But it’s no time to let your guard down.
