Calling the anti-terror operation “ring of steel,” the officer added that it includes more than 9,000 surveillance cameras with feeds from the Brooklyn Bridge and the Times Square to inside the city’s subways, all leading to a secret headquarters in lower Manhattan. But how many operators would be needed to monitor 9,000 cameras?, otherwise the cameras can only be used for intelligence gathering AFTER a terrorist action.
The head of the Counterterrorism Bureau of the New York Police Department said yesterday a terrorist attack against the country is “inevitable” as the US prepares for the July Fourth festivities. “I think that it’s inevitable that there’ll be another attack in this country,” Chief James Waters told ABC News on Saturday, two days before the Independence Day. “We are well-prepared to respond to that.” Some 100 specially trained officers are ready 24/7 for deployment with high-powered weapons, radiation detectors and bomb-sniffing dogs.
“We look at the global threat environment,” said Meghann Teubner, the director of counterterrorism intelligence analysis in the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau. “What’s happening in the world? Are there any new trends that we need to be concerned with? Any new tactics that terrorist groups may be using that have any implication for us here in New York City?” The police department is also looking into tactics by used by Takfiri militants in attacks from the Charlie Hebdo one in Paris to the shootings in San Bernardino, California and Orlando, Florida.

Terrorists won't attack anywhere where there are armed citizens.
They are cowards.
