    New York's police commissioner has 1,200 staff members devoted to counterterrorism, at home and abroad. A specter has haunted the New York Police Department during this week's torrent of 10th anniversary commemorations of 9/11—the 13 terrorist plots against the city in the past decade that have failed or been thwarted thanks partly to NYPD counterterrorism efforts.

    Good article, except when the author says the NYPD in 50,000. I think it is about 1/2 that.
