America-Frisk 'Em and Pat 'Em Down-you STILL won't be safe

30 December 2009 at 11:17:09 AM

I've only halfheartedly wanted to comment on the terror attempt on the plane the other day. For me, I've already decided long ago that I would only fly in a real emergency or if no other means of transportation was around. I don't mind driving for a few days to get somewhere and it isn't as if, in this highly technological society, that you can't be in touch instantly with someone across the globe, including voice and video, without having to be there in person. (I exempt sales jobs where it seems like being there personally is a huge boon to moving product). I've read that the guy who attempted this said he was part of Al Qaida, that the ringleaders of THAT group were ones released from Gitmo,  that he actually openly ran a group in the UK,

 The Christmas Day airline bomb plot suspect organised a conference under the banner “War on Terror Week” as he immersed himself in radical politics while a student in London, The Times has learnt.

that he was on a watch list in the US that didn't go down to TSA, that right wing nuts want to make a separate line at the airport for guys with names like Abdul, that TSA wants to body check everybody, including using the naked scanners, and is fine with everybody being confused about whether they can have a blanket on a flight during the last hour (get ready for someone to be offended at a woman breastfeeding a baby who can't cover up), and Jim Demint, Republican, put a hold on someone to actually RUN the TSA... and now we have another war.. in Yemen.  And did you wonder what the crotch-bomber's underwear looked like?

Anyway, TSA is a joke. The fact that there was a shoe-bomber AFTER 9/11 proves that George Bush and the Republicans didn't keep us safe. TSA isn't keeping us safe. The Obama administration isn't keep us safe. Should people get to the point where, to fly on a plane, they should expect to be body-searched, patted down, go through a scanner that's designed to look at all your body including, now, the crotch? Maybe people want to fly badly enough that they're willing to put up with all of that. Not me.

Still seems to me that the root of all the anger against us stems from US policy in other countries, including invading and occupying other countries.
