Why are the Checkpoints Back?

I was quite surprised yesterday to discover that driving south on I-91, just after the intersection with I-89, the border patrol checkpoints had returned. These disappeared some time ago as the Boston Globe reports, no actual terrorists were caught at these checkpoints. It was pretty much all mairijuana arrests (in Vermont! say it ain't so!).

So what's the deal? Why did I have to get stopped and asked if I were a citizen?

Good question, particularly because you would have to be one stupid terrorist not to know how to avoid the checkpoint on I-91 if it was vital for you to do so.
