Too many people do that, and they end up being distrusting of an entire group -- or even an entire nation -- of people because of the actions of a very few. This generally happens because of what the government and the media tells these people about others who are not like them. They see frightening stories on television or the terrorist attack could be on the horizon, they often lack the framework they need to carefully analyze those signs and determine what (if anything) should be done to ensure that the potential terrorist act does not occur. It is not possible to stop every act of terrorism, but it is generally possible to stop most of the major ones that come from well-known groups. These groups can be monitored, allowing for an analysis of what they are doing and how their activities are changing over time. In some cases, it becomes very obvious that they are planning something, and in other cases it can be more difficult to determine what is taking place and whether it poses a threat. Without a good analysis, though, and without a framework to use for that analysis, important issues can easily be overlooked. That stops citizens from being properly protected, and does…
