Protecting our country from terrorists is meaningless if, in the process, we turn our country into something not worth protecting.

Everyone is complaining but it is a privleage to fly. Don't like it... don't fly.
There are some very bad people out there, who will do ANYTHING to try and kill us.
It is only a matter of time before another airliner situation occurs.
When it does happen, everyone will be calling for peoples heads because not enough was done.
Its a double edged sword whether you like it or not.

Not that I'm defending the overly protective measures here but..
How do you stand against this on constitutional grounds when the constitution doesn't guarantee you the right to to fly?

Well.....it looks like the terrorists got what they wanted. They have turned us so paranoid that we have altered our way of life. I can just imagine the smirk on thier faces when they see things like this.....taking our freedom one step at a time.

To be completely honest.
Do you think that children aren't used to carry bombs and explosives..? think again!
I'm 43 years old and my dad is about 76 and we've both lived in America our whole lives and no child has ever killed us with a bomb yet. I don't know anyone that's ever been killed by a child bomb either for that matter.
Just sayin' - anything can happen....some people somewhere at sometime might have plastic explosive tampons in their bodies, you wanna be checked for it? Working in a mental hospital I had a girl one time that had a razor blade braided in her hair. Of course I found it, I knew her and she'd been admitted so many times before and had cut herself once she got inside the building...she had a history of sneaking razor blades in. Of course, the times before when she snuck them in and no one found them, she cut herself, yeah, but never once died
Any thing can happen. Any one can do it. I might mix some DMSO cocktail in my blood before boarding a plane and scratch myself with my fingernail and give the whole plane a neurotoxin. Maybe we should draw everyone's blood before letting them board.

I viewed this video twice and couldn't see where he touched the boys testicles... it wasn't proof that he did coz the camera guy is behind the boy being searched.... having said that he does look a little young to have been arrested and searched.
Although the media scrutinized Bernard Kerik, President George W. Bush's first choice to head DHS, and uncovered embarrassing details about his mother, there was no discussion of Chertoff's mother, who played a noteworthy role in the creation of the Zionist state in Palestine.
The omission of Chertoff's mother's Zionist past suggests that there is an effort by the media to conceal his ties to Israel and his status as a "de jure" Israeli national, by birth.
Under Israeli law, a child born to an Israeli citizen, including children born outside of Israel as first generation out of Israel, is considered an Israeli citizen. The child remains an Israeli national until he or she formally renounces their Israeli nationality.
