    Are you an expert in this area?
    I, for one, am not happy about all this security, but in todays world, it is necessary.
    Its the root cause of terrorism that must be addressed.
    Not an expert but in the Air Force my job when working in the passenger terminal did deal with security and screening of passengers on any military or civilian aircraft that we were handling. My current job still requires me to be familiar with the rules and regulations.

    Welcome Sarge. I may not agree with you but welcome aboard! As you know from WS I was a Sgt. in the ANG. (Formerly Mirror Lake 444).

    Hello there!

    My point was that all these new procedures would not have prevented what happened. As it was said in another post it gives the appearance of something being done but it doesn't address or solve how the guy got the explosives on the plane. Two very different things.

    The correct response is the eradication or permanent isolation from modern technology of all aspects and persons of Militant (Traditional) Islam.

    Other approaches are like trying to make accommodation with the cobra loose in your house.

    Before anyone "yanks my chain" about prejudice and intolerance, I didn't make the rules, the Mohammedans did.

    You may be right. I'd like to see the bureaucrats commmunicate better with each other. And if they miss something make they wish they hadn't just like we do in the military. Court Martials would be fine with me.

    Apparently his father warned that his son was radicalized and may be up to something. Why he was on a low priority list and someone like Cat Stevens is on a no fly list makes no sense to me.

    New precautions in security will not help, if we have information that is not passed.
    This kind of thing is why Dept. of Homeland Security was formed.
    One would think after his father went to the Embassy,that he would have been put on a no fly list and had is visa pulled.

    Dept. of Homeland Security failed.
    State Dept. failed

    And if you throw in what happened on the Army base.

    FBI failed
    Defense Intelligence Agency failed
    Dept of Homeland Security failed.

    Yes...that's a grand idea. I got one better. Why don't we stop selling clothes to the Middle East. Anybody with clothing made BEFORE 2009 is a terrorist. Everybody with clothes after? Safe bet they are not.

    Nice and kind of surreal at the same time. I remember looking into the night sky and wondering how I could tell there were no flights as I never noticed them much before, but the sky was definitely different.
