  • Hospital builds an "anti-terrorist" fence

    My brother sent me this link. Does anyone else find it strange that a VA hospital in the mountains of NC would need an "anti-terrorism" fence? Is this place more than just a hospital?,6965314.story

    Fence part of security upgrades for Asheville VA hospital, residents question $750,000 fence

    ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A veterans hospital in the mountains of North Carolina is building a massive anti-terrorism fence.

    The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Monday that the Charles George Veterans Affairs Hospital is building a $750,000 fence around the hospital's perimeter to prevent a suicide bomber. Officials say the hospital could be a target because military facilities are harder to hit. Some Asheville residents think the money should be spent elsewhere.

    The project is part of the second phase of security upgrades. The first phase, completed in 2007, included barricades around liquid oxygen tanks and cost more than $500,000.
