CNN on McCain vs. the Bainbridge police boat

CNN recently ventured to Bainbridge Island to check in on the little police boat that got Sen. John McCain so mad late last year. You can watch their piece above. Lots of footage of Eagle Harbor and Bainbridge ferry commuters.

As you may recall, McCain and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma singled out the boat on their list of the nation’s most wasteful stimulus spending projects. You can read my story about it here.

  1. Ferry security prominently featured in the piece.

    The WSP uses dogs to check vehicles at some terminals on some days. Walk-on passengers are not checked at any terminal at any time.

    If a terrorist wanted to get their boat dangerously close to a ferry- they could but it on a trailer and drive it on.
