Threat puts New York, D.C. on alert as 9/11 anniversary nears

WASHINGTON — Undaunted by talk of a new terror threat, New Yorkers and Washingtonians wove among police armed with assault rifles and waited with varying degrees of patience at security checkpoints Friday while intelligence officials scrambled to nail down information on a possible al-Qaida strike timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

I'm sorry folks, but I'm not liking police check points where we are searched at gunpoint by uniformed government men with assault rifles.  Reminds me of the Ben Franklin quote, "Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither."
