Here are a few of the places our government has identified as terrorist targets: Old MacDonald’s Petting Zoo, the Amish Country Popcorn factory, the Mule Day Parade and the Sweetwater Flea Market.
The inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security released a report this week showing that as of January, Indiana (with 8,591 potential terrorist targets) had 50 percent more listed sites than New York (5,687) and more than twice as many as California (3,212), ranking the state the most target-rich place in the nation, The New York Times reported.
I agree with the organizer of one of the events on the list — the Apple and Pork Festival in Clinton, Ill. (see photo) — who told the Times, “Seems like someone has gone overboard. Their time could be spent better doing other things, like providing security for the country.”
