Realistic Anti-Terrorism Training

While on many fronts the "War on Terror" appears to be little but empty rhetoric, here is something that looks like real effort. The US Department of Homeland Security is buying a nearly abandoned town of Playas, New Mexico for use as a staging ground for simulated terror attacks.

This is certainly a welcome move, though it is a bit unclear why it took over three years for such obviously needed initiative to materialize. Given the negligible price,- $5m,- it is really strange that a similarly abandoned piece of real estate has not been acquired elsewhere at a similarly low price.
