"The risk that we're especially concerned over right now is the lone wolf terrorist, somebody with a single weapon being able to carry out wide-scale massacres of the sort we saw in Norway recently," said Obama.Or Fort Hood, which actually occurred here in America. Oops, wouldn't want to jump to a conclusion. Workplace violence is a horrible problem. But you get the drift. 9/11 brings to mind national security, which has always been a GOP issue, and the administration brains have no doubt been using theirs to find a way to counter that feeling going into September. So, get ready to hear that we've practically defeated AQ (in the last 2-3 years) so now we must be vigilant for preppers going to their local gun or surplus shop and using a form of legal tender known as cash.
Also, get ready to finally start hearing more about Libya. Media observers will note that after a near blackout we've recently seen a small burst of activity about how our non-war of protecting rebels and hoping Gaddafi becomes collateral damage is going. That's likely because things are starting to go well for the rebels and they can see Tripoli from their huts.

They may even find al-Megrahi and drag him back to the states for trial. All of which will be hard for GOP contenders to negatively spin. If all goes according to plan, of course.
