Obama's America: Fear of attack at 9/11 high

President Obama's be-nice-to-our-enemies-and-they-will-love-us-back foreign policy isn't fooling Russia or the Islamic State.

Nor are ordinary Americans being duped.

From NBC News:
The nation is on edge in the wake of brutal beheadings of journalists by Islamic extremists — with more Americans saying the United States is less safe now than at any point since 9/11, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll shows.

The exclusive poll reveals that 47% of Americans believe the country is less safe now than before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. That’s a significant increase from even a year after the twin towers fell when in September 2002 just 20% of the country said the nation was less safe. The level of fear across America also is up substantially from last year when 28% felt the same way.

In fact, just 26% of Americans now feel the nation is safer than before 9/11.
