Sunday School: Papal Security

With God giving you air cover you'd think that you wouldn't need excessive ground forces but NYC wasn't taking any chances. I guess its like John Dillinger observed, "you can get more with a simple prayer and a Thompson Submachine Gun than you can with a simple prayer alone".

Reconnaissance submarines, radiation detection trucks and a fleet of well-equipped helicopters: From land, water and sky, the New York City Police Department is taking extraordinary security measures for Pope Benedict XVI's historic visit to the city.
