Spotty enforcement for new US air screening rules
My Way News ^ | 1/4/10 | ERIN McCLAM

On the first day of what was supposed to be tighter screening ordered by the U.S. for airline passengers from certain countries, some airports around the world conceded Monday they had not cracked down.

The United States demanded more careful screening for people who are citizens of, or are flying from, 14 nations deemed security risks. But enforcement of the U.S. rules appeared spotty.

"Everything is the same. There is no extra security," said an aviation official in Lebanon, one of the countries on the list. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

We’re cracking down, our jihadist enemy is cracking up...they must be laughing their a$$e$ off at us...they will make us go broke yet, won’t they? They know we will spend our very last penny before we profile their a$$e$. This is like watching a football game; the defense has decided instead of worrying just about the offense on the other side of the ball, they are going to cover the WHOLE STADIUM...

If we had a President, he could put out the word to the entire world. “If we cannot get tighter passenger screening at your country’s airports, your flights won’t get clearance into U.S. airspace nor be allowed to land here.... PERIOD!!!!

Fine, if that’s the way they want to play...

Turn every flight inbound around right now, I don’t care about the fuel state of those flights...They’ll find somewhere to land...

But since we have a feckless leader who can’t comprehend the problem...Oh, check that, he knows exactly what is going on...

I bet that action would get the attention of a lot of people then...
