Calls for Full-Body Screening Devices Grow After Terror Attempt
In the wake of Flight 253, the TSA must get more anti-terrorist tools
Which just screams to me CIA. These guys don't just stroll on board an airliner heading for the United States without a little help from some very scary guys in expensive suits. Just sayin'.

I think the best solution for safer air travel is for the airlines to hire anesthesiologists so we can be placed into a medically induced coma and loaded into crates for the journey.

So how the heck did he get on airplane with no passport?
In 1991, when then-Attorney General Richard Thornburgh released the FBI's annual crime statistics, he noted that it is now more likely that a person will be the victim of a violent crime than that he will be in an auto accident. Despite this, most people readily believe that the existence of the police relieves them of the responsibility to take full measures to protect themselves. The police, however, are not personal bodyguards. Rather, they act as a general deterrent to crime, both by their presence and by apprehending criminals after the fact. As numerous courts have held, they have no legal obligation to protect anyone in particular. You cannot sue them for failing to prevent you from being the victim of a crime.
They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.
