On the radio, a question about terrorism & AY

Atlantic Yards Report

AYR reports on Brian Lehrer Show guest host Errol Louis's refusal to take the bait when Atlantic Yards terrorism hawk "Alan from Brooklyn" called in during a segment on the NYPD's recently issued report on homegrown terror threats.

Sure, the show wasn't focused on Atlantic Yards, but there are concerns about terrorism at the planned project. AY critics have questioned how much preparation there has been to protect against terrorism; indeed, the Empire State Development Corporation, in its response to the AY environmental lawsuit, has acknowledged that a review has been conducted, but has been unwilling to make details available.
