Terror is as much "words" as the explosives themselves.

If I tell you I'm going to whack you over the head with a baseball bat but don't tell you when, you'll be watching over your shoulders all the time, even if I have no intention of doing it. As long as you don't know my true intentions, terrorism has worked.

In this case, they hope that the USA will put time, effort and money into making sure they are secure in the White House. That all those entering the house will be looking over their shoulders for that baseball bat.

You make a lot of threats but don't do anything. Eventually, "the enemy's" preparation may get lax and then you attack.
