Mitt Romney and Anti-Terrorism

Yesterday, Gov. Mitt Romney announced that police will inspect passenger luggage on Boston's subway system.

The inspections will be random for the most part, but could be mandatory at some stations, Mr. Romney said in an interview. The program was not in response to a specific threat against the transit system here, he said, but to the general threat of terrorism.

“I think we recognize globally that transit systems, airport systems and the like have been targets,” Mr. Romney said, “and therefore we have to adjust our security parameters to no longer focus on just crime, but to add the additional threat of terror.”
