    was American. You're starting with too low of a universe.

    And at any rate, that is the number over time, not just one year with one outlier event.

    Why have there been no more grand attacks like that?  Because the USA is preventing them?   No, because the terrorists killed off ALL their most talented guys in that one event.  

    But we keep pooping our pants over the fact that some terrorist is hiding behind the next bush.  But there isn't!  It is just old uncle Fred on a bender again, wishing he had a roof over his head and healthcare so he could get some help.
