Nat'l Guard May Return to FL Airports

by TChris

Florida's National Guard patrolled Florida's airport terminals for a few months after 9/11. Now the National Guard troops have received "warning orders" advising them that they may return to that duty later this month.

"Several law-enforcement officials said there is no specific threat to Florida." So why return the troops to the airports after nearly a three year absence? A cynic might suspect that the administration is trying to scare voters, or that it wants to create the illusion that the government is working to protect voters from a specific threat.
