    Dutch to use full body scanners for US flights

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands – The Netherlands will immediately begin using full body scanners for flights heading to the United States to prevent future terrorist attacks like the Christmas Day attempt by a young Nigerian.

    Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, managed to board a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport carrying explosives but failed to successfully detonate them.

    In a preliminary report, the Dutch government on Wednesday said the plan to blow up the Detroit-bound aircraft was professional but called its execution "amateurish."

    Interior Minister Guusje Ter Horst said Abdulmutallab apparently assembled the explosive device, including 80 grams of PETN, in the aircraft toilet, then planned to detonate it with a syringe of chemicals.

    "It is not exaggerating to say the world has escaped a disaster," Ter Horst told a news conference.

    Abdulmutallab arrived in Amsterdam on Friday from Lagos, Nigeria. After a layover of less than three hours, he passed through a security check at the gate in Amsterdam, including a hand baggage scan and a metal detector.

    If they had done the job, this guys name would have been on the no fly list and he never would have been allowed to board.

    We need better communication between the different intities designed to protect us along with good communication with the rest of the worlds intities.

    This is something the 911 commission suggested how many years ago?

    Sounds like to me Bush had more years to fix this than Obama has.

    Obama also had some fires to put out before he had a chance to deal with the mess.

    Who left all these messes again?

    Bush is not to blame for everything on the planet. Seriously, it is SO old

    radical Islamist Nazi bastardization of the Muslim religion is to blame.

    True, but he is to blame for what he did.
    That is personal responsibility.

    Did Bush or Obama set up the current airline security systems?
