Fewest Number of Americans Concerned about Terrorism since 9/11

Fewer Americans are concerned about international terrorism as a “critical” threat to the United States than at any point since September 11, 2001, according to the 2012 Chicago Council Survey released today. While a majority is still worried, the intensity of concern about terrorism has steadily declined.

At the same time, most Americans do not credit the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan with reducing the threat. [cont.]
