    Re: TSA ejects Oceanside man from airport for refusing security check

    What I find most frustrating is the administration's inability to name the enemy. They not only react to fight the last war, but they treat everyone as a suspect.

    Bad guys came aboard with boxcutters on 9/11, so now we ban all metal with a sharp edge. They tried again (and failed) with liquid explosives, so now we can't bring liquids on a flight. One guy tried to blow up the plane with a shoe bomb, now we have to have our shoes checked before we board. Then some jerk tried to hide a bomb in his underwear, and now TSA has to sniff and grope our underwear before we can board.

    The nudie booths will tell TSA if a man is circumcised or a woman is having her period, but they won't detect the PETN explosive that the bad guys tried to ship in ink cartridges. So why can't the administration name the enemy - Islamist fanatics - and focus on groping them (as dirty a job as that may be) and leave the pilots, attendants, kids, prosthetic cases and business passengers alone?

    How many failed or successful terrorists attacking the US in the last 15 years or so have *NOT* been Muslims?

    What's being controlled? Don't you understand you have to show something actually be controlled for this to even make sense.

    Obviously not about truth or reason or facts either.

    How large is the chance? I mean get into my car on Saturday night even though I live near the local bar strip.

    Is the chance greater than getting in an auto accident?

    the same amount of trouble as if the bomber walked directly to the counter instead of going to the screening area first.

    What did I win for knowing the answer?
    I may be wrong.
