Still a Marked Woman

Ayaan Hirsi Ali gave an invite-only speech at Harvard today, and security was apparently tighter than it was for Pervez Musharraf’s appearance at the university!
Attendees had to check in twice, showing a photo ID to a guard out front, getting a name badge, then showing an ID again to a guard just outside the conference room. There was also a uniformed police presence for the duration. 
It amazes me that the threat to Hirsi Ali to is still so great that the level of security was deemed warranted.
