Terrorist Attacks Since 9/11

Rush Limbaugh:
We have not had a single attack on our soil since 9/11, 2001.
Thomas Friedman:
[W]hy have there been no terrorist attacks in the U.S. since 9/11?
As far as I can tell, there has been one certifiable, international terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, the shooting at Los Angeles International Airport in 2002. It is not known whether the 2001 anthrax incident constitutes international or domestic terrorism, but it certainly was terrorism. Honorable mention goes to the 2006 Seattle Jewish Federation shooting, which, although classified as a "hate crime," is not especially different from the second shooting in the motivation of the shooter, only in that he was an American. Since 9/11, however, there have been numerous plots, and of course, many terrorist attacks around the world, quite a few of them serious.
