How the Israelis get it done...
I've mentioned before how our TSA agents should be brought up to the standards of their Israeli counterparts. Here's an article comparing their security checks in that nation as opposed to our own; http://biggovernment.com/jdunetz/2010/11/23/why-they-dont-need-to-touch-your-junk-at-israeli-airports/
I loved this little zinger: "As the United States defends against the ever expanding threat of Muslim terror, right here on our home turf, success depends on throwing off the shackles of political correctness and adopting the methods of our ally Israel."
While I completely agree with profiling (also known as Prudence and common sense) the problem is we have a gazillion airports and Israel has about 25 (and I'm not sure how many of those are major hubs.
How the heck are we going to train the necessary personnel to do this job? Although - the time to start is now. We must at least take a stab at doing this.
The other little issue is many TSA employees are black and I wonder how many have become Muslims.
Oh, yeah - thanks for reminding me about the temperature at your house. We are having some of the coldest weather we've ever had.
Tomorrow Anderson Excavating will dig us out...
Adrienne, you can bust my chops next summer when we're having 110 degree heat here.
As for the TSA, you're right that the time to start is now. Before we have another 911 type incident.
