What was Prediction After 9/11 of Terrorist Attacks?

Terrorists attacked on WTC 
I compared two articles published in 2001 during terrorists attacked on several important sites in the USA. First was a report and second was a short story.
The article with title “Many Sporting Events Called Off or Postponed” is about respond of sport communities to terrorist attack by postponed sport events around the nation. 
In addition to deep mourning, the sport community also concern with their own security, even security in the training area. 
Litsky and Williams (2001) started their article with national tragedy that had occurred in September 11, 2001. 
The series of four coordinated suicide terrorist attacks caused tremendous damages to USA, then followed by cancellation of many sport events, from baseball to hockey, soccer, golf and so on.

Moreover, the short story entitles “Fear & Loathing in America” is the same about terrorist attack on American soil, but author looks at different angles.
American had a lot of war with a lot of victims, but still fear in life. When writer wrote story, actually American has engaged war within the countries where attackers might come from. There are fear and loath on both sides.
According to Thompson (2001), “Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives” (paragraph.6). 
It is suggesting that the author is true about the current condition of USA, where there is ongoing war since September 11, 2001 until recently. The enemy is so mysterious from Al-Qaeda to ISIS to unknown.
I myself favor non-fiction story of Thompson, it is because the narrative so brilliant with exactly prediction of future event. 
American still screening shoes and underwear at airports, but no assurance will be avoiding the terrorist attacks in the near future. Fear and loathing still live in the American’s mind.
