Potential underlying theme in recent attacks

In each of the prominent recent attacks related to the "war on terror," a lack of security seems to have been a significant factor. According to CBS News on 11/6, for example, the Ft. Hood shooter wasn't shot until 3 minutes into his rampage. In a recent suicide bombing in Pakistan, most of the victims were soldiers standing in line at a bank known to be frequented by soldiers. The October 25th bombings in Baghdad could not have occurred without lax security.

My question is whether any of this lack of security is intentional in order to facilitate terrorism and to fan the flames of this perpetual war. It also appears that the Ft. Hood shooter was provoked by attacks on his religion (Islam), thus raising the specter of SRA, perhaps designed to provoke him into lashing out.
