Everything up to a point is okay on how the United States has fought the war on terror. If the focus was on how to stop terrorism from getting over to the United States or where this all started from, the success would be great. Instead, America is only protecting the U.S. and only being concerned about individual safety. Security after 9/11 is not as punctual as it was before 9/11.
America is in more danger than before 9/11 because tightening the rules, restrictions and people on the no fly list for example, makes for different ways of thinking about how to overcome security and other obstacles set in place. Terrorists are getting the advantage because of America mistakes.
In the article posted in the Washington Post, Omar stated “We divide

Secularism is the division of the state and religious beliefs, so before the law everyone is equal. The problem here seems to be the lack of understanding on our government's part and the lack of caring about religion. All in all, not taking a second to understand.

Americans trying to fly, pay the price for security that takes things too seriously. The only people who should be taking things more serious, should be Homeland Security. Homeland security is the overall Security. “Our nation is stronger and more secure than it was on 9/11, better prepared to confront the challenges we face, and more resilient than ever before. But despite these improvements, we do not have the luxury to rest on our laurels. There are still terrorist groups around the world who wish us ill, and are plotting attacks against us”(Kirszner,Mandell). There is always going to be ways around our security.

Therefore, America is helping terrorists plot different, more creative, strategic plans. With this trait, terrorists will succeed nine times out of ten. “our enemies are motivated and wait--patiently--until we forget”(Ashmawy). America is only helping the
