Ferry Drill
During a drill, SWAT team members prepare to clear the ship Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, moments after boarding the Washington State ferry M.V. Salish, out of Bainbridge Island, Wash. In winds that kicked up whitecaps and drenched the small boarding boats, the U.S. Coast Guard and several police agencies drilled for a potential terrorist attack on a state ferry Monday by sending SWAT teams aboard the ferry while under sail on Puget Sound between Vashon Island and Everett, Wash. In addition to the Coast Guard, the drill involved Washington State Patrol troopers, King County sheriff's deputies and Seattle police. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
