News Talk Online October 9, 2009: Food Chain Could Be Terror Target & Obama's Nobel Prize

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, counter-terrorism experts have worked to keep America safe from additional threats. But one area point of vulnerability, agro-terrorism, gets little attention.

Experts warn that a single attack on U.S. farms could instantly contaminate the nation's food supply... and affect millions of Americans.

Terrorism expert Tim Downs, author of the newly released book Ends of the Earth, which explores such a scenario, was our first guest on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network. Downs talked about how the U.S. intelligence agencies have created plans to manage the thethreat of agro-terrorism, why food safety is often overlooked until there is a threat and why it would be especially difficult to stop agroterrorists.

The second guest was Mark Olsen, author of Animal Colony. The conservative author and screenwriter questions what President Obama did to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
