Hyperbole? Probably a bit, but while one cannot necessarily blame the NYPD for these actions detailed in  New York cracks down after "credible" 9/11 threat - I wonder though just how "credible" the terrorists information.

The image to the left is from Yahoo! News - isn't it ironic that it might be an iconic image? Is it an image of police guarding freedom or a representation of a police state? See too my post on New York's secret police.
