We should emulate the Israelis.They profile...like crazy.They question every passenger and more than once.They ask for names,places,documents,etc,etc.and,funny enough,they haven't had a single incident on an airplane in something like 30 years.
White grandmother in a wheelchair? A brilliant disguise if you ask me! ;-)

LOL! They seemed to think so too.
I agree with you about emulating the Israelis about profiling. Before a trip to the holy land, we were warned NOT to be cute about our answers to any questions. A minister gave them cute, sarcastic answers, and he was pulled from line, interrogated (including strip searched), and delayed for 24 hours. He finally caught up to the rest of the group, and he wasn’t as “cute” as before.
The former head of Israeli airline security was on T.V. several years ago, and he said they start profiling as soon as the ticket is bought. “Profiling” is a nasty word in America, but the Israelis are more realistic about it. Their results are far better than ours too.
I’m a 66 YO white grandmother with disabilities stressing about flying to Dallas tomorrow. I HATE flying and wish to God I would never have to again, but I have to go to Dallas again in 2 weeks! Last trip, with my 79 YO white cousin, also in a wheelchair, we were both pulled aside and subjected to the groping. I dread tomorrow...
