The Terrorists Among Us April 1st, 2004
by Noel T. Braymer, RailPAC President — Since the bombing of commuter trains in Madrid, Spain that killed 190 people this March, there has been a heightened state of awareness for transportation security. It is true there are terrorists among us in America. Many kill themselves in their terrorist deeds, some are unknowing accomplices spreading death and destruction. These terrorists kill on average 117 people a day, over 40,000 annually. They cost the economy up to $230 Billion in damage every year. I’m talking about the terror on our nation’s roads. We have far more to fear driving to work every day than riding a train.
