    This makes perfect sense and should have been done years ago.

    The Obama Administration gets one right.

    Just as I predicted....Failure was used as evidence that the failures needed more power to hassle the innocent.

    Yep...but at least in this case they are harassing non-Americans for a change. A step in the right direction.

    Translation: The Christmas Bomber was successful. While our foreign policy will not change and we can expect more attacks, they have successfully interrupted the American system, spread fear, and won a victory in the psychological war against the American populace.

    Hmmm...well, look on the bright side.

    The "enhanced" security measures will be particularly acute for passengers traveling from nations deemed by the U.S. as "state sponsors of terrorism" or "other countries of interest," the Transportation Security Administration said in its latest release.

    I'm sure if pressed TSA will come up with something other than "profiling" to explain what they're doing, but that's exactly what they've defined above.

    Same ones that are handling foreign airline security now ;)

    We need to hire Wackenhut personnel to do all the us bound security in the world.

    Everything after the "yup" is irrelevant, since the criteria for who gets hassled can, and probably will, be changed at the drop of a hat.

    Let see

    They attack us because they hate our freedoms.

    And we appease them by surrendering that very same freedom.

    Guess who is winning the war, boys!!
