Back Open

The spanking new US consulate in Juárez, which is where the US handles non-tourist visas applications, is back open today, after closing last Friday thanks to threats of a car bomb attack. The consulate has little in the way of barriers between the street and the front door, which is to say it would seem quite vulnerable to attack. Plus, that space, which is roughly fifty by fifty yards, is always teeming with scores of people, so any competent car-bomb attack would be devastating.
