It was privately run security that let those 18 onto the planes that fateful morning of September the 11th.

 

I understand the reluctance behind profiling, it can lure you into a false sense of security.

These terror organisations and their henchmen aren't dumb either.  Start profiling for one group of people and they'll switch to another group.

It's best to be vigilant and open minded to the possibility that anybody may be a threat:

Glad to see the "Thousands Standing Around" crew is getting their own iPads and Mac laptops.  Hopefully they will quit stealing the traveling public's iPads and Mac laptops.

When this country was founded "we" were the terrorists, at least in the view of England.

That's a ridiculous article.

Expecting TSA to be perfect is inane. At the same time, expecting that all the extra inspections and attention don't do any good at all is equally inane.
