Washington - More than a decade after the 9/11 attacks, "a little paranoia" on the part of the American people helps the country remain vigilant to terror threats, a top FBI official has said in an interview.
"The FBI is about two things - it's about arresting people and neutralising threats," said Michael Clancy, deputy assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's counterterrorism division.
Clancy in particular was talking about Operation Tripwire, an initiative begun several years ago and aimed at raising awareness among businesses about terror threats, and teaching them what to do if they see something suspicious.
"Churches, businesses - it is their responsibility too to report actions as they see," Clancy said.
[...]"I think a little paranoia is OK - not a lot of paranoia - but Tripwire is good in the sense that it keeps a lot of businesses out there a little more vigilant," he said.
