    Just more lipstick on a pig.

    At first I was encouraged at the beginning of the clip they talked about an increase in bomb sniffing dogs.

    And then they interviewed our dear, beloved Nico Melendez. Boy, does he sound like a complete idiot, or what?

    A viewer had asked the reporter to ask why people are being "violated." Nico's response?

    "It's uncomfortable. It needs to be."

    BS. Correct maintenance of an accurate explosive detection device would be far more effective in finding the explosives he says are the greatest threat.

    His father must have beat him when he was a child and told him it was "for his own good" as that's exactly what that statement of his sounds like: a parent "disciplining" a child.

    Pardon me, but Nico, you're full of (expletive deleted). Lot's of people go through screening, all over the planet, every day. How many planes that originate in Dubai, Australia, England, or Japan have been blown out of the sky? The answer is zero! Yet they aren't molesting Grandma and Grandpa when they come through the checkpoint. They are friendly, and not invasive, but still get the job done.

    They never mention that there were no hijackings from 2001 through 2010 when this nonsense started. The even admitted that the underwear bomber didn't have enough explosive to bring down a plane, yet they continue to insist that this garbage is somehow necessary.

    As the adage says "follow the money". This is a ruse being perpetrated on America to profit the security agencies and contractors. The rest of us lose.

    Classic government corruption, one area where Washington has become the world leader.

    Alas, no early retirement...still on payroll to lie about not being patted down if you do everything right.

    One choice edit anyway: "We need to be able to find some of these things and WHERE [cut to picture of guy's (expletive deleted)] the bad guys are hiding them."

    This so-called news so-called report is just another milquetoast presentation that subtly urges people to continue being passive. Which, given the behavior of Americans so far, isn't a tough request.
