Isn't this question an oxymoron?

because many people place the former as being a subset of the latter.

I bet the likelihood is much higher than that

for regular civilians in flyover country.

I looked all over for the original National Safety Council study but
couldn't find it. I'm trying to figure out over what period of time they were tallying up terrorist-inflicted and cop-inflicted mortality, and who was considered an at-risk person (anywhere in the World? Just civilians here in the US?) Are they counting deaths that happened on 9/11 among those that are caused by terrorists?
