Unprecedented Public Safety Plan for Obama Inauguration
Talk about being paranoid, talk about wasting tax dollars, this is it.
George will make sure all is well.
All I can say is I'm glad I will not be anywhere near DC.
Does this make you happy??
Why is ABC News making this info public??
Virtually every major bridge heading into the nation's capital on Inauguration Day will be closed to vehicular traffic. In other words, unless they are on a bus or in an authorized vehicle, riders will be turned away by the police or the military.
That announcement came from the United States Secret Service, which is the organization tasked with handling security for the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States.
The reasons for all the controls over traffic became clear Wednesday night as ABC News learned of a new security bulletin regarding the inauguration.
While there is no specific credible threat to the event, the government warning expressed concern about improvised bombs, suicide attacks and hostage scenarios. The reason? Intelligence officials have concluded that the inauguration is a very "attractive target" -- because of the symbolism, its historic nature, the presence of VIPs and the sheer volume of people expected in and around the ceremonies.
