Rep. Pete King accused the Obama administration on Monday of dragging its feet on anti-terrorism funds for New York City.
King (R-N.Y.), the ranking member of the Homeland Security Committee, has sparred with the administration since it announced last week it is making reductions to port and mass transit security grants slated for the Big Apple. He accused people from outside New York of being insensitive to the city’s needs.
“The horror of 9/11 fortunately does not live with people in other parts of the country,” he said in an interview on WABC radio. “We are number one on the terrorist target list.”
