Homeland Security: Insect Zoo Higher Priority Than Statue of Liberty!

yes, that is accurate. The Homeland Security Department, according to their database sees an insect zoo in Indiana as a greater target than the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, The Empire State Building, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The report noted that Indiana has 8,591 assets listen in the database — more than any other state and 50 percent more than New York. New York had 5,687 listed. It did not detail which ones, but the Homeland Security assessment of New York this year failed to include Times Square, the Empire State Building the Brooklyn Bridge or the Statue of Liberty as a national icon or monument.

Now, I’m not dissing on protecting Indiana, but how can Indiana have nearly twice as many “critical assets” as New York when Indiana’s population is just over six million compared to New York’s nineteen million. New York has three times the population, including the Greatest City in the World and yet has only just over half the “critical assets” that need protections? The City of New York itself has more people than the whole state of Indiana!
