From the Paper:

"People in the United States have enjoyed the isolation which the Atlantic and Pacific oceans provide them. Even during the height of World War II, the closest that the Axis powers came to bringing the war to American shores were some ineffective rice-paper balloon bombs, carried by the Trade Winds, which did little or no actual damage. Ever since the Civil War, wars have been fought somewhere else, on someone else's homeland. That is why Americans were so shocked when the World Trade Center became the target of terrorist attacks in 1993. What was not known at the time, however, was the actual intent of the terrorists to bring down both of the primary World Trade Center buildings in a cloud of cyanide gas which was designed to kill thousands of people. The fact that "only" six people died has nevertheless caused many Americans to firmly link Middle Easterners with terrorism, and the effects of the 1993 bombing continue to influence U.S. foreign policy today.
