Letters – Letter – Security Measures –

To the NY Times Editor: Re “No Rest for the Security Weary” (Practical Traveler, Sept. 27), although many security measures are annoying, we haven’t had another terror event in all these years. It is tough to take credit for what hasn’t happened.

Better intelligence and coordination, as we have seen out of New York and Denver recently, show another effective layer of security — stopping the would-be terrorist in the planning phase, well before he or she reaches execution. I am so glad to see this story unfolding because it really gives the public some insight into intelligence, if they pay attention.
