To me ,it seems like "closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out"
To me, this does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling that the TSA has done everything needed to keep the jihad folks out of the sky or for that
matter OUT of the airport,let alone out of the country.
I have flown internationally a few times,most recently to an allied country, that is also fighting a war on terror.
At Philippine Airports, the guards(both military and civilian) openly carry rifles and shotguns, they screen you (check your papers,frisk,and xray baggage ) upon entry into the airport AND again before you enter the terminal. They openly patrol throughout the airport and they are permitted to profile to their hearts content . Also, you cannot remove or access baggage without PROVING that its YOURS. There are also NO stations with a single guard.
Personally, I believe that, at a minimum ,all domestic international airports in this country should have national guard troops patrolling within the international terminals. Notice how I stress INTERNATIONAL terminals???
If I was sitting in a plane and looked out the window and saw that it was being escorted by fighter jets...I would be saying to myself:
"SOMEBODY SCREWED UP AGAIN, back at the AIRPORT"
