San Diego at a Crossroads: Analyzing Homeland Security Post-9/11


Aired 4/19/09

Tom Fudge: The anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks comes up tomorrow. And today we're going to spend a little time looking at the several ways this event has changed life in San Diego. Our city is a large metropolitan area, with a military presence, a busy international border and a busy airport. All of those aspects of our lives have been touched by the tragedy of 9/11. Some would say we've become paranoid and unfriendly toward foreigners. Some wonder whether we're really in a position to prevent another 9/11. Some wonder whether religion is the cause or the cure for the hate that drove the hijackers.

Today we're going to talk about several aspects of our lives, following the 9/11 crossroads. We begin by talking about the elaborate security system that was born of the attack six years ago.
