The think we should be told- according to today's Southport Visiter our town is a top terrorist target:
THE United States fears Southport could be targeted in terrorist attacks, secret Whitehouse documents reveal.
A $52m telecommunications hub in Kew, where trans-Atlantic cables link Europe with Canada and North America, is listed as a key site for the country’s homeland security.
Our sleepy town is one of 12 places in Britain listed in confidential documents released on whistleblowing website, WikiLeaks.
The 7,300-mile undersea fibre-optic cable makes landfall at a huge station based at Southport Business Park, on Wight Moss Way.
Owned by US firm Hibernia Atlantic, the state-of-the-art cables have the capacity to allow huge data exchanges, equivalent to 25 million simultaneous phone calls.
American embassies compiled the suspected ‘targets for terror' list in February 2009 to improve “protection of the nation's CI/KR [Critical Infrastructure/Key Resources] to prevent, deter, neutralize [sic] or mitigate the effects of deliberate efforts by terrorists to destroy, incapacitate or exploit them".
and please Mr Reporter less of the 'sleepy town'
