I seriously thought when I saw this it was a Joke. I can't believe they are going to drop any method of screening.
How often do they have the name of a real terrorist anyway? Or for that matter any idea who the next Islamic Cult suicide bomber might be.
They already have tiny little 3 and 4 year old and even younger children on their watch list and hold them up but now when they try to board with Mom and Dad but they are not going to use country of origin as reason to make damn sure they are not nut jobs bent on killing us infidels/
Who ever is running the show is out of their (expletive deleted) mind.
This seems to fit into the soft stance or often what seems to be no stance Obama and Napolitano have against terrorist.
Obama is looking more and more suspect when it comes to where his true loyalties lie in my book.
But then I'm thinking about having a bit of a Tea party in my future,
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.
WASHINGTON -- Travelers from 14 countries that have been home to terrorists will no longer automatically face extra screening before they fly to the U.S.
Beginning this month, anyone traveling to the U.S. will instead be screened based on specific information about potential terrorist threats, a senior Obama administration official said. A person would be stopped if he or she matches a description, even if officials do not have a suspect's name, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security issues.
For example, if the U.S. has intelligence about a Nigerian man between the ages of 22 and 32 whom officials believe is a threat or a known terrorist, under the new policy all Nigerian men within that age range will receive extra screening before they are allowed to fly to the U.S. If intelligence later shows that the suspect is not a terrorist, travelers will not be screened against that description.
