here's the thing of your assertion. you are thinking that all this added security actually makes you safer.
the problem with protocols that try to save you from things already passed is that they are just a catch up game.
it is the "appearance" of security. by golly if those terrorist's wanted to come to America and just start car bombing the hell out of us they sure could. the Boston marathon should have taught you that. it would be far to easy for them to come over here and do it, which goes to show you that WE make the terrorists, and not the other way around.
we are not nearly as secure as we put ourselves off to be, it's that we pay the terrorist to blow up the middle east, not America. so your assumption that this in any ways provides some semblance of security is absolutely asinine. we are not any safer today than we were before 9/11. hell some dude got through airport security by doing the old roger rabbit and walking backwards through the exit.
America used to be such a great country with men of courage, now we are just a bunch of scared little girls, hiding from the boogie man. what the heck happened to us.
