TSA Airport Security Ignores Obama
After the would-be terrorist attack of the underwear bomber, Obama stepped up and demanded that airports increase security. Predicatively, many airports have ignored the commander and chief. Simply put, there is no way that TSA can effectively increase security in a less than a week. I've said it once and I'll say it again, the best defense against airline terrorism is to 1) Reduce people's incentives to kill us and 2) Use common sense. A 67 year old white lady from Tennessee is not likely to be an al-Qaeda operative. Instead of relying on scanners and wasting time making people undress, TSA employees should study the behavior and appearance of the passengers. They should examine body language, use more dogs and rely on intelligent police work.
Computers will be save us. Using our heads will.
