“As Big Bird is my witness, I thought pumpkins could fly!
Please don’t beat me anymore ... “ Dina Frank
Incredible, ain’t it? A little girl with a serious, disabling disease and they think she might be a terrorist.
In Chechnya, Iraq and Israel, there have been several incidents of suicide bombs carried by disabled people. If we suddenly stopped screening certain passengers, they would no doubt use it to their advantage.
I think the TSA is incompetent and we definitely need better methods and more competent screeners. More behavior profiling and bomb sniffing equipment instead of groping.
Remember, it only takes a high explosive charge the size of a white-out bottle to bring down a plane with hundreds of people. Everything going on a commercial plane must be screened for explosives and I think groping is less effective than dogs or sniffer machines.
