Terrorism and the Convention

On my flight back to New York yesterday I was reading a peice by P.J. O'Rourke in the August Atlantic,Adult-Male-Elephant Diplomacy. It was based on a discussion that he had with Sec. Powell. O'Rourke writes:
I asked if we were so worried about terrorism that we were failing to worry about other worrying things. The Secretary seemed to feel that the President and the Department of State were sufficiently worried. "I actually meant the public," I said.

"I think the public is worrying too much about terrorism. Now everybody is running around saying they're going to be bombing all of the shopping centers."
