91/11/2001: The Day That Changed America
Is the U.S. doing enough to keep America safe?

In the year since September 11, 2001, the U.S. government has taken many steps to protect the nation from terrorist attacks. President Bush created the Office of Homeland Security and appointed Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge to lead it. Security has been tightened everywhere, from airports to baseball stadiums. The U.S. military continues to search through Afghanistan for members of al Qaeda, the terrorist organization responsible for last year's attack. But is this enough? What do you think?

YES
Since the terrorist attacks last year, security has been our government's top priority. The military remains committed to hunting down members of terrorist groups, while strict security measures across the nation will prevent terrorists from having success. The government can't guarantee that terrorists will never strike again, but they have done more than enough to make another attack very unlikely.

NO
Even though the U.S. government has taken many measures to protect the nation from future terrorist attacks, it's not enough. Terrorists can still fake passports and get into the country. Our intelligence agencies have struggled to communicate with each other. Abroad, the U.S. military campaign may have wiped out terrorist groups, but people are still angry enough to start other groups. The government has not done enough to keep our nation secure.
