Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge apparently didn't think Chicago's Miegs Field was quite the security risk Mayor Daley tried to make it out to be.

"I'm disappointed they closed it," Ridge said of the decision, which Daley has portrayed as intended to increase security for Chicago's downtown against suicide attacks by terrorists in small aircraft.
"As [Pennsylvania] governor I occasionally used it. It's a beautiful short runway along the lake," Ridge added.
"That decision to close that field, that impetus was prior to 9/11, at least to my recollection, they were planning on closing that thing even before Sept. 11," Ridge said.
