Here's a story that brings home the very real threat that terrorists still pose to us within the United States. And another good reason why airport security should be allowed to target suspicious people for screening regardless of their ethnic background or their number.
Because you know the current rule, right? The FAA will fine an airline that has more than two arabic men in screening at the same time on the grounds of "discrimination." Gosh, they may blow up another plane, but at least we can feel good about ourselves!
Here's the deal. Once caucasians, blacks, asians, hispanics, amerindians, pacific islanders or men from Mars start hijacking and blowing up planes, we'll broaden the screening. Until then, keep the airways safe.
