A case of too little, too late

So, yesterday the State Department announced they had revoked the visa of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is charged with trying to bring a plane as it flew toward Detroit. The news came out in the daily press briefing at the State Department where spokesman PJ Crowley was discussing how since Christmas [...]

Full body scanners revisited

Joel Mathis at Philadelphia Weekly has been kind enough to respond to my recent post on full body airport scanners:
Conor Friedersdorf chalked the opposition to scanners up to prudery, claiming they’d be worth it if they somehow made it quicker to get through airport security. “My hatred for [...]

Obama admits he 'missed the red flags'

President Obama angrily told the Nation that "red flags" were missed that could have disrupted the Christmas Day plot that attempted to bring down an airliner headed for Detroit. "The US government had sufficient information" to stop the plot, President Obama said. "But our intelligence community failed to connect those dots. [...]

How useful are the new air travel screening rules?

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
After the Northwest Airlines incident on Christmas Day, it seemed like everything that had become routine about air travel and security was thrown out the window. Now, no one knows what to expect. Perhaps it's a good thing, making it difficult for terrorist to study what's allowed and what's not. But [...]

TSA gets bad timing award

About five hours before Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded a plane in Nigeria that would eventually take him to Detroit where he would be arrested for blowing up that plane, Gale Rossides, the acting administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, sent out a congratulatory, year-end note to all employees.. "Your dedication is [...]

Captain Underpants and the illusion of security

DESHAILES, GUADELOUPE - I doubt there are many people who would look forward to leaving this little piece of paradise. I am sitting on the deck of a sailboat anchored in the harbor of this quaint fishing village. I just finished a hot croissant delivered by an enterprising young man plying [...]

Suspicious Behavior

Come with me once again into the cycle of symbolic security-tightening at the airport. Refrain from petting the German Shepherd busily sniffing your duffle. Try not to look into your bag too many times. Actually, try not to look at much of anything. Let your carry-ons get whisked away. See [...]

A chagrined senior official of al Qaeda admitted today that “systemic failures, human error and dumb screw-ups” had prevented the terrorist organization from blowing up a U.S.-bound airliner on Christmas day. “This is totally unacceptable,” said Omar N.

After accused bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab managed to get explosives past security at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport last week on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, it looks like the Dutch aren't taking their chances anymore. Dutch authorities have just announced they'll be introducing full-body imaging machines on passengers bound for the United States. [...]
