Was I dreaming that there was a war on terror?

U.S. officials searched travel databases, combed airline manifests and tightened security Friday in a search for what could be a handful of al-Qaeda operatives suspected of plotting a terrorist attack on Washington or New York.

Maybe I was just dreaming, but it seems to me that we've spent the last ten years fighting terror "over there" precisely so that it doesn't affect us "over here." Someone has some 'splainin to do.
