  1. Security cameras have been installed in major cities of the US, London, Berlin, Frankfurt… you name it. However, the installation has been kept confidential. No one is supposed to know that national security establishment is watching, how and from where. To announce that security cameras have been installed at the entry and exit points of the city is indeed foolish. Why make announcements and tell every one where the cameras ?
