Horribly Inappropriate Metaphor Watch

From the Canadian Press:
HALIFAX -- The Canadian military is trying to plan for a range of security threats to offshore oil and gas platforms to avoid what one senior official describes as a potential Maritime version of 9/11....

Only one of the six natural gas platforms off Nova Scotia is manned, and has a workforce of less than 100 people.

There are three manned oil platforms off Newfoundland.
Good work CP on catching that idiocy.

Maybe terrorists will ram the gas platfrom with a cruise ship with 3,000 people on board?
