A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the U.S. government to pay $17.8 million to a family that lost four members when a Marine Corps fighter jet crashed into their San Diego home in 2008.
From bomb-sniffing dogs to pat-downs of fans, security will be tight at 13 NFL games and the U.S. Open tennis tournament Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"Over the years, we've learned, and we know, that, given the way we play our games simultaneously ... it does present an attractive target, whether it's a terrorist group or a homegrown violent extremist that would want to act out," said the NFL's Miller, who also mentioned the more-recent possibility of someone seeking to avenge Osama bin Laden's death in May.
"From our perspective, while the 10-year anniversary does fall on our first weekend - and we're sensitive to that - if it didn't, we would still be sensitive, because we've been doing this since 9/11 of '01," Jeffrey Miller, the NFL's chief security officer, said. "Right after that happened, we put these things into place."
