The Post-9/11 'New Normal' Looks Much Like the Old

Sunday, 04 Sep 2011 08:02 AM

WASHINGTON — Ten years after Sept. 11, the "new normal" is looking a lot like the old normal.

The attacks that spawned two wars and will forever shout from history books have receded from daily life for most Americans.

But that's not the case for the soldiers or those in government who are trying to ensure the nation is never caught so off guard again.

A poll by The Associated Press and the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center finds that only 15 percent of those questioned see a high risk of being attacked where they live.

Lee Hamilton of the Sept. 11 commission worries that both citizens and the government are becoming too complacent.
