    Didn't Napolitano insist the system worked with the underwear bomber? Yes, yes she did.

    No, but if I had a choice I'd take the body scan! No brainer!

    So you wouldn't rather we do nothing at all? Where'd that get us on 9/11?

    BTW I like that: "nudie booths."

    Was it the Republicans or the FBI/NSA doing warrantless wiretaps? I didn't know there was a Republican FBI or NSA.

    Yeah. You've never engaged in that, ever.
    I wish Obama had given her an official TSA goose.

    Well that should tell you something right there. The vast majority of terrorists ARE amateur retards. Quite frequently we can rely on them to give themselves away, aside from ANY security measures.

    What makes you think so? That seems like it would not be an easy thing to keep secret, since court records are public information. Unless of course they were immediately whisked off from the airport terminal directly to Gitmo.

    I dunno, they'll probably blow up a plane. Not worth the hassle, no more often than that happens. I believe that the last time a flight originating or landing in the US was blown up by a passenger was...umm, never.

    (And before you ask if you can put a price on security and people's lives, of course you can and should. Any rational government policy should include a cost/benefit analysis.)

    I'm OK with the metal detectors and some basic profiling for passengers, and the current screening procedures for luggage. Anything beyond that is pointless (and honestly, even a lot of THAT is probably pointless, but I can deal with it). I take the metro every day with no security whatsoever. So far, no one has tried to blow me up with explosives in their shoe, underwear, or any other creative new place to stash them.

    Passengers aren't going to allow planes to be hijacked anymore. Any terrorists on airplanes are only a danger to the people on board the plane.

    Kandahar, you are a dreamer:

    Passengers aren't going to allow planes to be hijacked anymore. Any terrorists on airplanes are only a danger to the people on board the plane.
    On 9/11, 246 passengers died. 2,600 died on the ground. As to passengers now allowing planes to be hijacked anymore, ever hear of altitude setting off an explosive? What makes you think anyone is going to jump up and down and try to commandeer an airplane? They know they can't get in the cockpit.

    Umm OK. Thanks for the info.

    If an explosive is set off, then the plane can't be hijacked, now can it? On account of everyone on board being dead.
    I really have no idea where you're going with this.

    That was my point. No one is going to hijack an aircraft in the United States again for a very very long time. Ergo, any terrorists on board the plane are only a danger to the other passengers on board the plane. Hence, bringing up the specter of another 9/11 to justify draconian security procedures is incredibly stupid. Nothing like that is going to happen again. The worst case scenario for air terrorism would be something like Lockerbie...which A) didn't occur in the US, and B) was caused by explosives in the cargo hold, not explosives on a passenger.

    He thought about it but figured he'd get his finger soiled.

    Seriously I consider her incompetent. When she made the statement that the underwear bomber proved we were doing a good job I lost all respect for her competence.

    Yeah right. I love it when people say never.

    We we told in economics class years ago there was no way the U.S. would ever have another depression. Seems to me we came very close, and to millions in this country it is a depression.

    ...except I didn't. I said for a very very long time. But way to throw a red herring out there to distract from the actual topic.

    Irrelevant to the subject at hand.

    Passengers aren't going to sit idly by while a terrorist hijacks the plane anymore. What incentive do they have to cooperate if they think they're going to be flown into a building, instead of rerouted to Cuba?

    Not to mention, of course, that it's much more physically difficult to hijack a plane now that the doors to the cockpit are basically sealed.
