    There have been numerous attacks on US soil besides Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Most notably during the war of 1812 when the British burned down the White House. http://americanhistory.about.com/od/warof1812/a/war-of-1812-timeline.htm
    Less notably, but quite impressively, the Japanese attached bombs to ballons and sent them across the Pacific Ocean during WWII. A few hundred of them made it across. http://www.wired.com/thisdayintech/2010/05/0505japanese-balloon-kills-oregon/
