Terror Threats Still Affect Public Sentiment, But How?

Every time a new threat is exposed that threatens air travel, it's inevitable that the public feels the pangs of 9/11 all over again.

Citizens will no doubt deal with the inconveniences that they are going to experience at airports for the foreseeable future, but after the initial shock, many more are going to begin to wonder if the "War On Terror" is being fought in the best fashion and whether we are more safe or less safe.
