"The American public has become increasingly attuned in recent months to terrorist threats after plots for violence at Fort Dix and JFK Airport were foiled, underscoring the fact that homeland security is still the No. 1 campaign issue for 2008," Dr. Jasser said during a meeting with The Washington Times editorial staff yesterday.
