Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on the Apprehension of Suspected Terrorist Aafia Siddiqui . WASHINGTON, DC—"Today's revelation that suspected terrorist Aafia Siddiqui was apprehended carrying a list of potential attack sites including a number of New York landmarks is a sobering reminder that New York remains a top target for terrorist attack.
Federal agencies and law enforcement officials must continue to be on alert and work together to keep our nation safe. It is critical that we remain vigilant in confronting these threats here at home and abroad. It further underscores the need for the Department of Homeland Security to allocate the necessary funds to protect New York and its residents. I will continue fight to ensure that New York has the tools and resources needed to continue the fight against terrorism.
