(Newmont Mining Corp) about 11/9:
“I do have concerns about another possible attack on U.S. soil and believe that it will happen if we don’t take and maintain an aggressive intelligence posture in this country. The politicization of issues surrounding wiretapping, following the money, profiling and Gitmo prisoners, as well as many others are impacting our strategic advantage in these areas.
“Gold mines would not be a high-impact target for terrorists in this country. Attacking a gold mine would not have neither the national economic impact — nor would it have the loss of life they would want or need to create national fear. A gold mining operation is not a concentrated facility, but rather a dispersed operation.”
