Yeah, I lived in England during the IRA bombings and they never reacted as scared as this. 9/11 is when America went from "Home of the Brave" to "Home of the afraid". It was used as a government power grab of our individual rights and freedoms in the name of security. It was the beginning of the "Forever War".

Sure they can. It doesn't have to be jamming. It could force "airplane mode" for all phones in a car. It's easy to determine if a bluetooth or cellular signal is coming from inside or outside a vehicle, you just need 3 or 4 directional antennas at the perimiter of the car. The no communication mode could be enforced if the car was moving more than 5mph for example. Think a little bigger, these are more like computers than the phones of old, anything is possible.
