"Fighter jets will be protecting the airspace over his head. Chemical, biological and radiological sensors will be set up in the subway system and in other, secret locations. Coast Guard boats will be running up and down the rivers.

"And at least 6,000 police officers—some of them heavily and conspicuously armed—will be patrolling the streets, searching ticket holders and onlookers and looking out for trouble from perches high and low."
