"The response was actually alarming"
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
When Homeland Terrorism writer Lee Dodson posted a modest little survey, (ten questions) on Google he expected a modest response.
“The response was actually alarming,” said Dodson, author of Infiltration. “The people who took the survey are more aware than I thought they would be.”
Because of the storm, total results are as yet to be collated by the survey administrators, but below is a typical day’s results after the survey was up for two weeks. Administrators said that traffic was so heavy that the web page ceased function for several days. Complete results will be available in ten days.
Do you expect another major terrorist attack on the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska, or any of its territories?
Do you expect there to be great loss of life?
Do you expect a WMD to be used in the attack, i.e. poison gas, biological weapon, nuclear weapon?
Do you expect foreign nationals to carry out an attack?
Do you think sleeper cells are already in the United States?
Do you think you might have to defend yourself from terrorists in this country?
Do you think the U.S. government will be able to defend against a homeland invasion?
Do you believe that the current administration is truthful about terrorism in this country?
Do you think that we as a nation believe that terrorism is over?
Do you know enough about what to do if a terrorist attack strikes near where you live or work?
Asked for observations, Mr. Dodson, whose book Infiltration tells the story of an attack where a small force takes and holds a few square miles of Arizona territory, said “The two responses that bothered me were the questions about information from authorities, which was 77% negative, and the one about knowing what to do in the event of a local attack, which was 81% negative. Somebody’s dropped the ball, and the respondents are worried about it.
“Aside from all that, the reaction I’m getting from the readers is fascinating. Most of them like the central idea that enemies could well be planting “sleeper devices” on our soil, but a few objected that such a plan would be discussed in a book available to the general public.”
When told he was being described as a Homeland Terrorism writer, Dodson laughed “Not my doing. I write entertainment, not policy. Infiltration is fiction…I hope.”
Survey details, total traffic, and percentages should be available by November 11, 2012.
