    As has been well discussed in many circles, the monuments would allow the populations of those Muslim nations know that their governments do not agree with the 9/11 attacks and are mournful that the attacks took place.

    This is not a new topic by any means.
    Why do they have to do that? My country doesn't have a monument, so I guess that means that the government isn't mournful.

    Hey, if you've got a better idea from keeping Muslim terrorist from killing more people with planes then let's hear it. I have no problem making Muslims fly on Muslim only planes.

    It makes me wonder how many decent Muslims would give-up ever flying again knowing that were being put at such risk.

    By the way, you might want to remember they are still actively trying to kill us…even the multi-cultural, elitist, Muslim sympathizers who take their sides.
    How many planes have Muslims used to kill people with since 9/11? That seems to me to say that racial or religious profiling is unnecessary, as the current measures work.
    And Americans are actively trying to kill Muslims, so that point seems irrelevant.
    So follow me into the desert

    At least two that we know of - Richard Reid and Umar Farouk Abdulmatallab. Neither were stopped by the TSA - but rather by passengers and crew.

    Except in the cases I just mentioned.

    Americans are actively trying to kill the Muslims that attacked us on 9/11 but we're not targeting any other Muslim groups.

    One used his shoe and the other his underwear, neither of them tried to kill people with a plane.

    Al-qaeda attacked you on 9/11, what you're saying is akin to saying WW1 was started by Christians, it's true, but completely irrelevant.

    They both tried to blow up a plane - that's presumably what the TSA is trying to prevent with these new measures.

    We're in Afghanistan because Obama wants us there.

    Why don't you go for a nice run and contemplate the fact that your rage is misplaced?

    When I purchase an airplane ticket I don't give up my civil liberties...they are still my civil liberties and if a man or woman attempts to do something inappropriate, we all have the right to defend ourselves. Sexual battery is still a crime.
    I've been through numerous searches at the airport, the last thing they are is sexual. Why don't you put your wife and child in a burka so that they can't be sexually battered by people staring at them, as well.

    I have two girls and a wife and cannot imagine them flying right now. The men that put thier hands of them...I would want rip thier arms off and beat them to death with their own bloody stumps.
    THis is why your rage is misplaced. Female TSA agents search women & children, not men.

    And the most damnable thing about all of this is we all know--we freakin' know-- who the problem is...Muslims. But let the TSA cop-a-feel off of grandma and toddlers since they are just as likely to blow-up a plane as the guy named Muhammad who laces his shoes with fuses and packed his ass with enough C-4 to blow-up Detroit.
    WHat do muslims look like, pray tell? Are any of them blond haired and blue eyed?

    After all, we have to be sensitive to those who want to kill us of the rest of the world will think we're insensitive which seems to be the greatest crime of all is this world of multi-cultural crap.
    THis isn't about sensitivity. It's about the fact that muslims, contrary to your belief, can look like and/or be caucasians.

    Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the terrorist are winning this war and have the further satisfaction of knowing the While House is occupied by a Muslim sympathizer.
    Oh, now we'll really take your opinions seriously.

    It just pisses me off!!!
    Poor baby.

    Yes, that's already happening, But in case you didn't notice, many people are becoming fed-up with the current security measures, which is the premise of this thread. I'd like to see a show of hands from the "super security crowd" that fly more than once or twice a year.

    And in any case, these sort of plots are so vanishingly rare that it just isn't worth the hassle anyway. There have been only two terror attempts aboard aircraft in the past 9 years (neither of which were stopped by airport security, and neither of which occurred on a flight originating in the US.) If you want to include this liquid plot which never made it out of the planning phase, wasn't stopped by airport security, and didn't originate in the US either...then that's a total of three terror attempts in the past 9 years. Out of hundreds of millions of flights.

    But oh noes, if we don't have nudie booths in the airports than planes will start dropping out of the sky left and right.

    If it's a dry-run then all the security in the world won't stop it, now will it?

    I didn't ask if there have ever been any women in the history of the world who did something bad. I asked when a woman or child has ever tried to commit an act of terror on an airline. Let's not pretend that terrorists are indistinguishable from everyone else, when this is patently false.

    This is all bin Laden's fault though people. If we find him, the TSA will once and for all quit doing taint checks for the most evil man in the world. If you know the person out there that has bin laden hidden under there balls please, let us all know.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Unfortunately, there will always be someone to go up the chain of command and replace him and utilize the same techniques.

    I flew 61 segments this year, and I'm content with our current level of security. I tend to believe that the biggest whiners are the people who don't fly that often and have difficulties mastering the rituals of passing through security (shoe removal, bottling liquids and gels, etc.).
