Contempt

This is the only proper attitude to take against the so-called terrorists. They are a joke. They got incredibly lucky on 9/11, but since then they have been nothing but lame. We should not raise terror alerts over this. We should not even blink. We should not launch Congressional investigations. We should just continue improving our police work (and the channels of communication whereby these nut cases can be identified) but using these incidents to make travel miserable and to introduce general anxiety is a huge mistake. We're bigger than that. If we want to be free, we have to act free. To be the land of the free, we must be the home of the brave, not an armed compound for a bunch of scared ninnies who imagine there is a terrorist under every bed.
