TSA introduces 'known-traveler' program - The Hill's Transportation Report
Sign me up!
Well yeah..until someone manages to sneak in a bomb and blow up a plane under this program.
That will make me even LESS likely to want to fly in the future, since I will be even less likely to believe that the people on the plane with me have been properly screened.
They've had something similar for international travelers for a while.
My Parents use the "Trusted Traveler" program to go back and forth between their homes in Mexico and SoCal. You fill out a bunch of paperwork and if you pass the background anal exam you get a to go in the shorter line for all people in this program. They wanted me to submit the paperwork but I said no thanks.
It doesn't stop you or your car from being searched when you go into Mexico, you're just in a shorter line. And when everybody is in this program (believe me, it will become mandatory) everyone will be in the same long line but with more administrative hassles (which is I think the whole point of the program)
In needs to have a "No Muslisms Allowed" clause to work.
That would be a bad idea.
How many Catholics have blown up or hijacked airliners?
I understand why you said that. Really.
But if we profile an ethnic or religious group, it is very easy for a terrorist, Muslim or otherwise, to get around that. Profiling behavior NEEDS to be done. They keep talking about doing it, but they still don't.
This is true too. Practicing Muslism is a big part of the behavior as well.
Fighting terrorism is not unlike a regular crime/police work. Statistics tell the story.
