In a bulletin released Friday to U.S. law enforcement officials, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning of continued strong terrorist interest in targeting mass transit systems in the U.S. The 10-page threat assessment, obtained by NBC News, cautions that the U.S. mass transit and passenger rail systems are vulnerable to terrorist attacks because they are accessible to large numbers of the public and are notoriously difficult to secure.

I thought I was adding this to Threat Matrix rather than News/Activism.
Thank you for posting it here. More people will see it.
I was surprised yesterday when I went to the Ft. Myers, Florida airport that they had one of those mobile signs at the entry into the airport stating TERRORISM ALERT HIGH!
Wonder what’s up?
I’ll add it for you.

Here is the information as to why the threat level is high in the airport sector:
The U.S. Homeland alert level is: elevated (yellow).
The U.S. Aviation alert level is: high (red); has been since 9/11/01.

The DHS article is dated March 5, 2008.

I don’t think you are stupid.
You’re welcome but you had a much better link.
