SIW Blasted For Boston Marathon Interview

While SIW has primarily been republishing AP reports on the Boston bombings, they had an original interview with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security. It appears to be a softball Q&A, with a commenter blasting it:

"The person interviewed for this article has absolutely zero insight or experience regarding security for major events. His role, at best, is a limited perspective from the extreme outer perimeter of major events with no actual hands-on participation. The comments are indicative of his lack of knowledge of the subject matter. He offers superficial recommendations and attempts to "grade" response protocols when he has neither the credentials, training or experience to offer any valid evaluation. The only "Frontline" this guy has ever seen , is the frontline of a casino buffet. There are plenty of experienced experts for your magazine to interview who could provide insightful comments regarding major event security."

Take a look at the article and share any thoughts.
