AP Article

WASHINGTON - Asking for increased vigilance in the wake of the London bombings, the government is warning that terrorists may pose as vagrants to conduct surveillance of buildings and mass transit stations to plot future attacks.

===

Watch for vagrants that seem out of place or unfamiliar.

Yes. They could also pose as rocks, shrubs, politicians, dog poop, mailboxes, or elephants.  Yeah sure

What will the government come up with next?



But that was when I ruled the world

Darn...next time a bum asks me for some spare change, I'll have to ask him if he's planning to buy a rocket launcher.

Cmon Scarlet, we all know that a terrorist can't pose as any of those things as none of them are human.  Wink

In NYC and Washington (I work in NYC) the homeless lost a lot of their hideaways near many building due to potential risks to security, or more accurately, as an excuse to chase out the homeless from hanging around with their smelly bodies or carts of personal possessions, especially near 'nice' buildings. Who know how many homeless lost their lives during 9/11 in the collaspe of the WTC towers? To pose as homeless, many of whom are mentally ill or drug/alcohol addicts, could be a good cover, but to me this is just an excuse to move them off the streets. Instead of proscuting all homeless, maybe government should really help them and put them into housing where they could get the rehilibation or mental health help they need to live a somewhat normal life.

It's been done. It doesn't work. Most of them are a lost cause.

I see a lot of homeless posing as veterans, but that may be what you meant. If the terrorists wanted an intimate knowledge of the transit system, wouldn't they just get a job there? Ridiculous.

If that's true, SF will become the next Afghanistan in the war on terror. We all know that San Francisco has a soft spot for homeless, to the point that it's become a haven for all of them.

Actually it wasn't, it was a commentary on the sad fact that many vets end up on the street, but that isn't important.

Another case of governments covering all angles, just incase it ever happens and they can say, "well, we did say so". Why don't the just come out and say the typical terrorist has DNA, arms, legs, head and shoulders, but may not have all 5 characteristics. May also be golden in colour, swim a lot, and responde to the name "fishey".

Who can say what a terrorist looks like? Lets just all self distrct, then we may never worry again

So....we're supposed to distinguish a terrorist from a smelly, semi-toothless, unshaven crackhead who talks to God? We're hosed...

The UK is going radical on this "war on terror", they are specifically targeting the working class and lower and claiming terrorist threats as the excuse, all to protect the wealthy interests. The US tried this but has not taken it to the same extreme
