Dirty Bomb Scare in NYC

There was a dirty bomb scare in New York City a few days ago. Here’s the Reuters link.

According to CBS News there were checks points and travel was brought to a “near crawl”. The CBS article also stated, “First word of the threat came from an Israeli-based Web site quoting an alleged American member of al Qaeda predicting attacks in New York, Miami and Los Angeles.” But Miami and Los Angeles “made no adjustments to their normal security arrangements”.

I’m curious to know why NYC reacted cautiously and Miami and LA seemed to ignore the warning.
