Not working?

There have been exactly two terrorist attacks in the United States since 9/11/01, the Fort Hood shootings and the Boston Marathon IEDs; and in each case the perpetrators were killed or apprehended. Though they seem to have been motivated by terrorist jihadist propaganda, whether Al Qaida was directly involved in either is open to question.

No, the record is not perfect at home or abroad; but wars against terrorists do not feature climactic battles like Gettysburg, Yorktown or Falaise Gap. We're in this for decades to come. That State Department statement sounds silly; but it doesn't change that we became aware of a threat and reacted to it.
