I just saw this Think Progress video of Lynne Cheney telling Jon Stewart that the global uptick in terrorist incidents doesn't matter because they don't affect American interests:
A frequent Bush administration talking point in defense of the “war on terror” is claiming that United States has not been attacked since 9/11.
Yesterday, Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Cheney, reiterated this point on The Daily Show, claiming that terrorists regularly struck between 1993 and 2001 but not since 9/11. “It’s been more than six years. And that is not an accident. … There were many attacks between 1993 and the World Trade Centers coming down in 2001,” Cheney said.

Cheney replied that attacks on other countries were not relevant to the discussion: “Yes, yes. But we’re talking about American interests.” The audience booed Cheney’s remarks. An incredulous Stewart responded, “Aren’t we interested in [attacks on those countries]? I’d assumed they were our allies.” [...]
