Under Attack: 7 Thwarted Acts of Terror in America

It has been said that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Fortunately there has been no shortage of good men and women at times when our nation has faced potential disasters. In the upcoming action thriller Olympus Has Fallen, the President of the United States is kidnapped when the White House (secret service code: "Olympus") is overtaken by a terrorist mastermind. The national security team is forced to rely on the inside knowledge of a former Secret Service agent as they endeavor to rescue the President and prevent an even greater disaster. In honor of the film's debut on March 22, we're taking a look at moments in our nation's history when good conquered evil.
