This month we've seen the terrorist attacks in London, and of course, in New York in 2001, but here in Reno, Nevada?
Larry Martines, Anti-Terrorism Consultant, says, "There are people on the terrorism watch list, close surveillance."
Reno-based Larry Martines has spent his career in law enforcement and now works as a private anti-terrorism consultant to numerous state and federal agencies. Contrary to popular belief, he feels Reno is a more likely target over Las Vegas.
He reasons that Vegas has more resources than Reno to handle an attack and that bombing Reno would still have a devastating effect on the state's economy, but no matter where, Americans should expect another attack on U.S. soil.
"We're target one, do it on a grand scale.
Martines says it does not work for a country to take a defensive stance after a terrorist attack, and that the only way to fight terrorism is to take a proactive approach.
