This is a Santayana moment as I posted back in 2007:
The next terrorist assault on the United States is likely to come through relatively unsophisticated, near-simultaneous attacks -- similar to those attempted in Britain over the weekend -- designed more to provoke widespread fear and panic than to cause major losses of life, U.S. intelligence and counter terrorism officials believe-Washington Post

New York City and the United States dodged another bullet. No thanks to the Federal Government and the NYC Police Department but, rather the fact that the naturalized U.S. Citizen and Pakistani native suspect who may have planted the bomb in a parked SUV near Times Square did not want to be a suicide bomber. It certainly was not due to Mayor Michael Bloomberg who several years ago supported rules regarding the issuance of Taxi licenses where the immigration status of those applying for the licenses to drive a Taxi in New York City would not be questioned. Effectively creating a potential of 12,800 car bombs in New York City. Bloomberg is not making New York more secure by refusing to make sure that New York's Taxi drivers are legally in this country.
