Rugape, Normally I agree with you because I have noticed that your responses are reasoned and articulate. However, the bold (my bolding) portion of your response bothers me. This statement demonstrates the fear mongering of which boogie dog speaks. If you use this as justification for the invasive and intensive searches that TSOs have been required to perform (i.e., rubbing grope-downs, naked scanners) since September 2010, you should qualify this statement by expounding on that statement. For example, answer the obvious question about the "people" (i.e., Who?) "out there" (i.e., Where are these heretofore unnamed/unknown individuals?) "that wish" (i.e., Is this just wishful thinking on their part, or are there actual plans in place?) "to do the US and her people" (i.e., Which people? Who or what is the target?) "harm" (i.e., What kind of harm?). These questions need to be answered before I or anyone else can accept the security measures that are in place today as a necessary and prudent response to threats to airline safety and security.
