But that's a fair point. The thing is, however, is that nearly all of the terrorists and attempted terrorists aren't citing our freedoms when they attack us. They cite our policies, most notably our drone programs. Even Osama Bin Laden himself said our policies were what drove his marketing of Al Qaeda.
It's good psychological warfare to point to drone strikes or interrogation techniques as a motivator rather than hatred of all infidels for their way of life. The former is a message that divides and weakens Americans and potentially gets useful policies reversed while the latter would unify us. Do you think al Qaeda are too dumb to figure this out?
