      that they both used the same analogy about the light and dark is odd...

      Israel isn't worried that somebody will sue and win $132mm from a jury because they were detained 5 minutes longer than somebody else.

      Israel has how many airports? I'm sure it is easier to do in a small country.

        Hmm I wonder why it's taken TSA 1 month to report this incident. Liquid bottles - BAD, Guns - GOOD

        On the morning of Sunday, Dec. 13, Transportation Security Administration screeners at Gallatin Field inadvertently allowed a man with a firearm in his carry-on bag through security, according to a TSA statement released Wednesday.

        While in the boarding area, the unidentified man realized he had the gun and turned himself into TSA officials. In response, TSA rescreened every passenger at the airport, including passengers on a Horizon Air flight that had left the gate but not yet taken off, delaying three flights for more than an hour, said Roehm, who was briefed on the incident.
        “How can someone get through the checkpoint with a firearm when I have to take off my belt?” Roehm asked Wednesday.

          I thought this was a myth. make a list and never update it or use common sense.

          Michael Winston Hicks’s mother initially sensed trouble when he was a baby and she could not get a seat for him on their flight to Florida at an airport kiosk; airline officials explained that his name “was on the list,” she recalled.

          “Up your arms, down your arms, up your crotch — someone is patting your 8-year-old down like he’s a criminal,” Mrs. Hicks recounted. “A terrorist can blow his underwear up and they don’t catch him. But my 8-year-old can’t walk through security without being frisked.”

          It is true that Mikey is not on the federal government’s “no-fly” list, which includes about 2,500 people, less than 10 percent of them from the United States. But his name appears to be among some 13,500 on the larger “selectee” list, which sets off a high level of security screening.

            Nappy, you're doing a heckuva job.
            Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

              Between Napolitano, Giuliani, and Reid, we've had a hell of a past few weeks.

                I realize the screeners probably have to stick to the list no matter how ridiculous it seems, given that they're probably not given the leeway to make those decisions, so perhaps some sort of age clue that says to go after the adult Hicks and not the 8 year old one may help.

                  So the terrorists should hide their weapons on kids. Good tip.

                    You realize I'm not saying don't screen them, just that they extra no-fly stuff should have enough context (i.e. more than just a name) to avoid preteens getting put on the watchlist.

                          Evidently he doesn't realize that. Although I'm not sure how he could have missed your point.

                          No kidding... are these lists literally just names? You would think that there'd be some other information on there than that.

                          Like it could say "Steve Smith, born 4/13/82, has an amputated left leg" instead of "Steve Smith".

                          At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

                            Or he was being sarcastic.

                            Nah.
