"Real Reporter" George Stephanopolous doesn't Correct Senator Menendez's Claim that U.S. has not "had an attack on American soil since September 11th"

Just a few days after Senator Feinstein proposed an amendment to a journalist shield law that would make the law only apply to journalists she described as “real reporters”, real reporter George Stephannopolous left unchallenged the assertion by New Jersey Senator Menendez that the U.S. has not "had an attack on american soil since SEPTEMBER 11th".

Menendez made this claim as a justification for the NSA data collection programs that are being debated (emphasis added):
..When we have our sources and methods known by our enemies, we undermine the national security of the United States. I would say it's easy since we have not, thank god, had an attack on American soil since September 11th, to minimize the threat, but it's real. And the terrorists only have to get lucky once...

Amazing! It was just four short months ago that the whole city of Boston was shut down from a terrorist attack and "real reporter" George Stephanopolous couldn't remind the Senator of this fact?
