Cuomo: NY transit, nuke plants and more on alert

By Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has put police, National Guard and other emergency response forces on alert, but there have been no terrorist threats of retaliatory strikes against New York since Osama Bin Laden's death was announced.

The Democrat also says he, too, would have ordered the use of lethal force against Bin Laden, who orchestrated the attacks that killed thousands at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2001.

Cuomo says Monday it's a moment for joy, but also a sobering reminder that the fight against terrorism continues and may not end
in his generation.

He urged all New Yorkers to embrace the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's familiar warning: If you see something, say something.
