Terrorism expert says to be vigilant

NORWALK - New York-based counter-terrorism expert Don Decker has completed a new security assessment of potential targets here in southwestern Connecticut.

Decker's main message can be summed up by the trite "if you see something, say something" rule.

Decker says residents should take note of what police say was the Times Square bomber's choice of weapons. Items such as a crude bomb made of fireworks, fuel, fertilizer and a fuse, could be the future of terrorism in America.

Decker's latest security assessment shows the top targets in southwestern Connecticut are malls, train stations and schools, in that order. He says that if Americans are not vigilant, the country could suffer an attack at any time.
