Argument 1: The comparison between automobile accidents in America and what happened on 9/11. Premise: The author refers to the attack(s) on September 11 as an event that has caused the American people to be more susceptible to reacting with anger (possibly because the attacks were so close to home). This reaction helped the terrorists achieve their overall goal; fear. Ironically though, our reaction to the number of car accident deaths that occur each month does not compare to that of 9/11. There are still more people killed in car accidents each month than the total number of deaths on 9/11! Conclusion: The author finishes up by explaining that the fear in Americans was fueled by the media. Being constantly reminded that another terrorist attack could occur does not calm fears. This trend made Americans more concerned with terror attacks than being aware of the more probable deaths that occur (e.g. car accidents). The premise does support the conclusion.
