Obama Eliminates Funding For New York City Police Department Anti Terror Program

This revelation should make the city, devastated in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, feel much more secure.

From the nydailynews.com,

NYPD officials have found some troubling fine print in President Obama’s proposed budget.

The budget released Thursday proposes pulling funding in 2010 for the “Securing the Cities” program that the NYPD is using to develop a system to detect and repel radiological or nuclear terror threats.

The NYPD has already received more than $53 million in Homeland Security Department grants for the effort, including $20 million this year.

It has used the money to arm officers and vehicles with radiation detectors and to recruit other law enforcement agencies to form a protective ring around the city.
