Because no one knows with any certainty how many attacks there might have been without the FBI’s efforts (terrorism is characteristically a rare event), it difficult to calibrate is the actual risk. However, whatever the magnitude of the risk of terrorism, the FBI probably has substantially reduced it (Mueller & Stewart, 2014).
