With each report of attack or attempted attack that comes from abroad, or from the seemingly endless barrage of new and hyper-intrusive security measures being taken here at home, it is not too farfetched that we as Americans might be asking ourselves the very poignant question of whether the “bad guys” are indeed winning or not?
