Homeland Security SecretaryÂ Janet Napolitano hinted this week that the body scanners and “enhanced” pat-downs that have caused a ruckus at airports across the country could be coming to a train station, port or subway near you.
In an interview on “Charlie Rose” that aired Monday, Napolitano said terrorists will continue to seek vulnerabilities in the nation’s transportation systems.
“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime,” she said. “So what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”
