Mayor Bill de Blasio said yesterday that there is no credible threat to New York City after simultaneous terrorist attacks were carried out at the Brussels airport and a subway Tuesday morning.
The attacks in Brussels come less than a week after the NJ Office of Homeland Security held a conference whose featured speakers included Chief Jarrod Burguan of the San Bernardino Police Department.
Burguan was in charge on Dec. 2, 2015, when two Islamic extremists staged a shooting at a county building, killing 14 people. On last night’s Chasing News, he told Chaser Alex Zdan about rushing to the scene and getting the first update from a detective about 30 minutes after the shooting occurred.
Western civilization is under attack. Islamic terrorism struck again early today with the massacre at the Brussels airport and metro station killing dozens of passengers and commuters.
As I said on the morning radio show, it’s clearly time to step up our security at our own airports throughout the US. The idea that the ticket counters and baggage claim areas are vulnerable leaves open the possibility of a similar attack in the US. On the positive side, law enforcement has been doing an outstanding job of keeping us safe. As of June 2015, American law enforcement has thwarted at least 69 Islamic terror plots since the attacks on September 11th.
