Tight security in Times Square for New Year's Eve

Tonight's the night – New Year's Eve in Times Square. It's a big job for the New York Police Department, even without an attempted airline bombing fresh in everyone's minds. Our Allan Chernoff has this American Morning original report on how police are handling the massive security challenge.

    The NYC Police in large attendance at the NYC Times square New Years celebration each carried personal radiation detectors.

    Why are none of the American Soldiers in Iraq not doing the same? They do not even appear to have mass access to quickly obtain a personal radiation detector.

    If Iran's Uranium enrichment centrifuges are bombed, a huge extremely toxic and radioactive cloud of Uranium Hexafloride gas would engulf much of Iran and parts of Iraq.

    America is already asking a great deal of our men and women in the Iraqi war zone. America doesn't need any more Atomic Soldier guinea pigs since their forced marches to the Nuclear test mushroom clouds in the late 1950's.

    American Veterans and the American public should demand that soldiers in Iraq be equipped with personal radiation detectors to protect them from the strong possibility of Iran's Uranium enrichment centrifuges being destroyed, releasing large amounts of radiation thru-out that region.
