Is Homeland Security raising anxiety in the mountains, harboring terrorists in the dark hollows of Calhoun or other backwood counties?

State Military Affairs and Public Safety Secretary Joe Martin said yesterday West Virginians no longer have the luxury of knowing their state is safe and untouchable from terrorists.

Kasey Warner, U. S. Attorney for Southern West Virginia says that if he were a terrorist looking for a good place to hide and plan an attack, he would come to West Virginia.

He says West Virginia's illegal drug and gun networks, central location on the East Coast, remote hollows, chemical plants and interstate highways make it a great spot for terrorists.

Warner is convinced the next major terrorist attack will be in the "heartland." He has studied terrorism and guerrilla operations for 32 years.

There is no evidence of specific threats against targets in West Virginia.
