    The assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, was the first successful terrorist attack since 9/11


    Several high-profile terrorist attacks took place in the U.S. after 9/11

    On September 11, 2012, a group of militants attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others were killed in the attack. But before that incident, there were several high-profile attacks on U.S. soil after 9/11, and there have been thousands of attacks worldwide in the last decade.

    Attacks on U.S. soil after 9/11 include the 2001 anthrax attacks, the 2002 D.C.-area sniper spree, and a 2002 attack against the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport. In a 2008 report, the State Department counted 19 private U.S. citizens killed worldwide by terrorism in 2007 alone. The report also counted more than 40,000 terrorist attacks worldwide between 2005 and 2007.
