ABSTRACT
The article discusses views on the United States protection from terrorism. The United States has experienced a type of "Wars of Opinion"--that is, terrorists attacking the Nation. National security has become the operative word with the attack of terrorists on September 11, 2001. As a result of this vulnerability, the President of the United States established the Department of Homeland Security. It is the one department in the National government whose primary mission is to protect the American homeland. Homeland Security had an economic impact on the country, states and local municipalities. Radical movements have developed throughout the Islamic world, including the large Muslim communities living and working in the West.
