    Very convenient timing.

    If a person packing an explosive made it to the checkpoint and was identified as a threat during screening why wouldn't they detonate the device right where they stood taking out at least a few people at the checkpoint?

    That was exactly my first thought when I heard the report - we're all going to pay dearly for this.

    From the comments in the video I linked (the English language version):

    To date, there have been about 33,000 views of the subtitled English language version.

    Yet the original German (unsubtitled) versions have had 636,000 plus 31,000 views.

    Either Americans are very good at understanding accented German, or they really don't care to see this. I've posted this video and circulated it countless times around the internet, and most times it was the first subtitled English language version I posted, ie the one with relatively few views.

    The lack of interest is somewhat disheartening, but I continue to encourage people to pass this along and post it around the web. It needs to be seen.

    exbayern, I saw that when it first came out. But there was such a state of mad determination on the part of TSA to shove these things and the body groping down our throats in black October 2010, that you could have had videos of these things killing people and that would not have stopped the TSA. Now, the backlash is becoming severe and they're having second thoughts.

    The TSA apologists will never answer this. They never do. I've asked this kind of question umpteen times over the years, especially after Domodedovo, and they never answer it.

    I'm picturing everyone going through scanners having to do a plie, while still holding their arms in the surrender position, so the screeners can get a "good" look at the crotch area.

    A bit disingenuous, as Burger King's hiring policies appear to be a bit stricter (and of higher caliber) than the TSA.

    Unless you're counting the TSA Blog as "The Home of the Whopper," that is. Boggy Boob's told enough of them.

    Peter King, resident Congressional idiot, is already trying to credit TSA for catching this bomb & appears to be using that false claim to drum up support for TSA ...

    Todays THV: TSA credited for foiling potential bomb threat

    The Honorable Retard from New York will please note that more intelligent authorities have already stated that the Nude-O-Scopes likely would not be capable of detecting the latest underwear bomb.

    Of course. Predictable. I'm sure there are many Americans out there doing the same thing (some, to my eternal shame, probably in my circle of acquaintances).

    Damn it, I can't post a comment there; they're accepting only FB. Someone, several of you, please post comments!

    CBS Local Washington: Officials: No Need To Change Airport Security Procedures Despite Bomb Plot

    And we are -- the intelligence services (with an occasional assist from on-board passengers at critical moments) have averted any repeats of 9/11.

    It's TSA's abusive & useless thugs & goons with two-digit IQs that we Americans have an issue with.

    Be prepared for an onslaught of such stories in the coming days/weeks (maybe forever). "Look! The system is working! Groping granny's undies will do the trick!"

    The whole world is laughing. While they're keeping their tourist dollars to themselves. Congratulations, security goons -- you've done a bang-up job.

    It's interesting to me to note that so far there has been no comment whatsoever from either John or Janet about this. Is that indicative of anything?

    And let's keep sending more drones to more countries and bombing more places and killing more civilians, more, more, more, because that will engender good will and deter people from wanting to get back at us. American logic at work.

    Not I. I've only posted in TS/S twice in a year, once when i wasn't paying attention to where I was and once when a post was forwarded from elsewhere. In both cases, I deleted the contents of my posts.
