U.S. anti-terrorism experts reveal that unprotected rail lines that carry freight and passengers are open to attack. But, they add, so far the terrorist network which used jets for the 9/11 attacks and small boats to hit Navy ships hasn’t discovered trains.
Rail, said Michael Leiter, former director of the National Counterterrorism Center, is “very, very, very vulnerable.”
Worse, he explained at a counter terror conference, that al Qaeda knows that rail is an easy target. But, he added, the terrorists are just “not focused on it” yet.
