Terrorists performing dry runs...

Sorry if it's a repeat. Until we learn how to take airline security as serious as the Israelis do, I think we can expect future attacks to occur.

Re: Terrorists performing dry runs...

The "TSA" is a unionized joke. Until we privatize airport security and look for terrorists instead of shaking down granny because of her nail file, they will still be a threat.

Re: Terrorists performing dry runs...

My lack of confidence in the people who man the TSA is utterly complete. These people simply do not have the ability (with the current procedures) to fulfill their mission statement:

The Transportation Security Administration protects the Nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce.

I travel very frequently, and in the next month or 2 will be attempting to publish an article, so far written on airplanes, about my observations.

Re: Terrorists performing dry runs...

With all the antiterrorist laws, and the supposedly draconian Patriot Act, I'm amazed these pricks aren't hustled off to a soundproofed room somewhere.

You think that hasn't been the case for the past 2 years?

Re: Terrorists performing dry runs...

The entire thread and the article from the post merely mentioned terrorists....

Not sure where you made the leap to Islam....but maybe this thread should now be moved to "Religion"
