Summary:

After Palestinian commandos killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972, Nixon administration officials worried about the same thing that today's government officials fear: radioactive dirty bombs exploding in U.S. cities, The Associated Press reported after obtaining documents under FOIA from the National Security Agency and the National Archives. The documents also reveal that airline companies feared that increased security measures could bankrupt them.
