It's All So Puzzling

Our government issued a global travel alert in response to jihadi threats:

Citing "increased terrorist threats" from militant groups in various regions of the world, the U.S. State Department issued a global alert on Monday for Americans planning to travel following deadly militant attacks in France and Mali.

It's so odd. I'm having difficulty understanding how this could be.

First of all, our president is not George W. Bush. So we've got that.

And then our new not-Bush president made a speech in Cairo reaching out to the Moslem world.

Yet still, almost 7 full years into the Age of Hope and Change, we still have angry jihadis trying to kill us?

All over the world?

Good golly gosh, just what could we possibly do in response to the threat beyond what we've done?
