DC = Low-Risk

The Raw Story reports the Department of Homeland Security has placed Washington, DC in the bottom 25% of states and territories likely to see a terrorist attack.

This despite two of the 9/11 planes targeted the nation's capital.

The placement means the DHS considers Washington a low-risk target. Al Qaeda is known for attacking targets it did not destroy in previous attacks. The 1993 World Trade Center attack followed by the 9/11 attacks being the most famous example. (TRS)
