Finally. A mere seven and a half months after Sept. 11, there is an official acknowledgement from Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge of who we should REALLY be on the lookout for at our airports. And it’s not members of Congress, a former vice president or grandmothers from Peoria. It’s certain foreign nationals.
Thanks, HS Director Ridge. And no thanks to those who have never seen a profile they couldn’t get their skivvies in a civil libertarian knot over. The latter would, in effect, keep compromising security by refusing to distinguish levels of risk, while adding unnecessarily to the logistical costs of American air travel.
