Keeping NYC Vulnerable
The New York Post reports that the FBI and the Justice Department have begun new probes in New York and other cities targeting members of Hezbollah. There is fear they may be planning to activate sleeper cells and stage an attack.
About a dozen hard-core supporters of Hezbollah have been identified in recent weeks as operating in the New York area.
Additional law-enforcement attention is being centered on the Iranian Mission to the United Nations, where there have already been three episodes in the last four years in which diplomats and security guards have been expelled for casing and photographing New York City subways and other potential targets.
Meanwhile, the NYCLU is doing everything it can to stymie anti-terrorist steps by the NYPD. From challenging random bag searches on the New York City subway system to bemoaning CCTV installation at possible targets in public places, the NYCLU has been at the forefront of making the terrorist job an easy one.
Their executive director, Donna Lieberman, has been working feverishly, along with associate legal director Christopher Dunn, to make sure that no terrorist liberty is left unprotected. If New York is attacked again, these two have a lot to answer for.
