I find this discussion of metropolitan areas vs. the rest of the country somewhat unsettling. The 9/11 attacks were an attack on the United States and in that sense and attack on all U.S. citizens. We as a nation will decide how to respond to that attack and to the threat of future attacks. We don't parcel out responsibility for national defense to the people who live in the most threatened locations. I don't think much of federalism on any issues, especially this one.
