The Christmas Day terror scare favors the rivival of Bush-style rhetoric. ++ Obama´s refreshing attempt at an open dialogue with Muslims is turning into a classical security response. ++ Though the breach was largely the fault of American intelligence and European airport screening, Washington's first reaction was to start targeting the Muslim population. ++ In spite of Obama's calls not to overreact, “actions speak louder.” ++ The message of terror is widely spread over the United States: again, the Al Qaeda strategy has succeeded.
