Are terrorists living in Atlanta? 

MADELINE, ATLANTA
No. I don't think they're going to bomb CNN or something like that. Because if they did, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night. I don't want to think like that. I think the bulk of whatever bad is going to happen already did. People just like to get freaked out. The media helps to freak them out. I'm not scared. Maybe I'm just in denial. What can I do as an average citizen except worry about it and worrying is a pointless activity.

MIKE, ATLANTA
Yes. They may not have shown their faces yet or come out of the woodwork, like roaches do, but when their time is right, they'll come out. Since it's going on throughout the world, it's going to be here, too. They're all over the country. But I'm not afraid. I'm not worried about it. The U.S. government will take care of it. If not, the American people will. I have plenty of confidence in them. I'll fight back in a heartbeat. I'll fight in the Southern style. I'll catch you in the alley and you're history.

HADI, ATLANTA
Yes. Every Muslim radical or militant has the potential to be a terrorist. We have potential terrorists here. Not all Muslims, but the militant ones. They're like a family or brotherhood. That solidarity strikes them to do something unacceptable. One of them gets hurt and they become a partisan. It's not like the Christians; one gets hurt or killed and nobody cares. You don't get scared if you don't have a bad experience, but I had a bad experience when I lived in Indonesia. I almost got killed. u
