A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday reveals that 36 percent think the country is safer from terrorism than it was before the 2001 attacks.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans, however, are not personally worried about becoming a victim of terrorism. And most said they are prepared to deal with an attack if the worst should happen.

    Yes, it is unlikely that Bin Laden will ever be caught. He is probably hiding in some cave in Pakistan or Afganistan and will never be found. He is probably is going to die there because he a coward and too afraid to come out of the hole!

    He is a 53 year old on dialysis and we haven't been able to find him. He can't possibly move that fast.
