Your trying to connect one person's stupid decision with somebody else being responsible.
this is exactly the whole point about government: They never could, can't & never will be capable of any guarantees for your personal security. The
Supreme Court ruled that even the police officers on the scene if you are caught up as the victim of a crime, are simply not responsible
The same is true for the government on the whole: The Constitution provides for resistance/protection in the case of foreign invasion; That's what
the State Militias & our 2nd Amendment Rights are for; These are the specifics
in the Constitution that is generalized by the Preamble phrase
"provide for the common defense." They have zero authority under the Law
to compromise any part of the Constituiton in favor of another. In
are the final responsibility for your own security. It wasn't the "system" that caught the underwear bomber...It was the
people on the plane
that really stopped it. Those people took responsibility for their own safety on the scene
because the government is
simply not capable
for doing it for you.
All the government can do is set ever-expanding "systems" to act against your
Rights & liberties under Law & forcibly take your
to support those systems. It still surprises me how few people there are that haven't bothered
to look at history & how government really
work...How few people actually realize how much this "goverment" violates the very same Laws that created their jobs (under our support
the first place. How many people fail to realize that they occupy those offices with our consent
& that they have to act within the Law
to keep those jobs? We the People are their employers
& We the People can remove
them from those jobs when they fail to follow the
Constitution; It is, in truth, their contract of employment & every day people can see how much they disobey that contract.
For example, how about those "back-room deals" that are rampant in the legislation of the Health Care Reform? They use our money
each other for "special deals" on virtually every Bill on which they "deliberate" & they've been doing it for decades
! Look in the
Constitution & see what the Penalties Under the Law
that they must face for committing bribery

You know what, it's the airport's fault. The government should leave this crap to the airlines and airports.
Yep, this is where the responsibility of airport security lies...With the airport itself; They are the ones who conduct their business
selling the convenience of travel...So they are also the ones who must provide for their own security. By allowing the government to butt in, they
only violate Rights when under Oath to uphold & protect our Rights.
