SNIPPET: “NEW YORK (WABC) — NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly warned that New York City remains the primary target for terrorists here.
Kelly spoke to a group of security specialists at a seminar that had been planned long ago.
The gathering focused on terror tactics, and security in the subways.
As rail traffic increases around the upcoming holiday, at Penn Station and throughout the Amtrak system there is an increased show of force reportedly known as “Operation Railsafe”.”
SNIPPET: “”Railroads and subways remain among the suicide bombers favorite targets,” said Richard Kaminski, Dir. Intelligence Analysis.”

Officers Riding Rails To Bring Security Awareness To Passengers”

SNIPPET: “MIAMI — Two days before the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks, security is being stepped up around the nation, and police agencies from across South Florida teamed up to make sure the rails are safe.”
Anything to avoid profiling Muslims.
The best way to kill the remaining interest in trains is to make boarding one more like boarding an airplane.
Maybe the moslem terrorists in America have finally realized how easy it is to attack the railroads and not the airlines.
And instead of targeting the Muzzie terrorists (why that would be profiling, which is wacist!), more likely the railfan and railway history community. So owning old railway timetables, railway photographs, maps, will make one suspect. That would be the logic of Sister Napolitano.
Does this mean we can finally stop subsidizing amtrak and spend that money on new roads where it will actually be used?
Translation: Someone is getting taxpayer bucks for this. The entire Department of Homeland Security is nothing but a huge slush fund for defense contractors.
Cindy, don’t you have a long list of links to terrorist information, or is that someone else? A friend sent me an e-mail about the recent Muslim activity in France and I told him that we Freepers have been on top of that subject for years.
I’ll surprise you, the readers and lurkers and give you only 1 link. It shows most of the research links near the top.
That is terrific, Cindy. Thanks.
