    Just saw the report.. My first reaction: :eek: x 1000!

    Did you see the part about using the Cessna with a camera that can see objects, five miles away?

    I read this article and my first thought was good, now the sheeple can stop thanking DHS & TSA for keeping us safe. I'm afraid it's going to get worse before the masses start putting their foot down and demanding an end to the systematic disintegration of our freedoms and constitutional rights.

    My second reaction was a substantial increase in my blood pressure...

    Okay, I may be showing my naivete here but aren't Prison Planet/InfoWars/Alex Jones slightly kooky conspiracy nuts? I freely admit I'm not terribly familiar with them so I may be way off, but I just don't want to see the anti-TSA fight get conflated with really off-the-wall conspiracy-theory stuff and thus get discredited.

    His op-ed is clearly biased however I don't think his info is fiction.

    Unlike FetePerfection, my first reaction was an increase in blood pressure, followed by a wave of nausea!

    Unlikely that this exercise is targeted at a single terrorist or small group of terrorists who smuggled themselves in. This was a "message" exercise aimed at anyone in the US considering certain forms of "civil unrest". It is of a piece with the arrest of the Michigan Militia members last year (nearly all of whom were released and not charged). It sure looks like DHS is afraid of the natives. Evidently, even though they can monitor each and every communication in this country, they are afraid of things that might be under their radar. They would be well advised to focus their efforts on a richer target area, perhaps flash mobs in Chicago? The trouble will start in the inner cities.

    Don't you mean "inner city airports?"
