The Secret Reason Obama Is Doing A Terrible Job Of Reducing The Threat Of Terrorism
Today, the Pew Research Center released the results of a new poll showing that a majority of the American public – 52% – now believes that the federal government is doing “not too well” or “not well at all” at reducing the threat of terrorism.
What the poll wasn’t designed to tell us is why Americans might believe that the Obama Administration isn’t doing well at reducing the risk of terrorism. The easy presumption to make is that 52 percent of the American people believe that the Obama Administration isn’t doing a good job of reducing the threat of terrorism because the threat of terrorism is too high. Another interpretation is possible, however.
It’s possible that a significant number of people participating in that Pew opinion poll indicated that the government isn’t doing well at reducing the threat of terrorism because they know that the threat of terrorism is already so low that reducing it is almost impossible.
Since 2001, the average annual number of people in the USA killed by Muslim terrorists is TWO. No, not two percent. Just two. On average, only two people in the United States are killed per year by Muslim terrorists. That’s a threat of practically zero.
What on Earth could the Obama Administration possibly do to make the threat of terrorism lower than it already is?
