Reader comment on item: Security Theater Now Playing at Your Airport

I have talked to so many people who believe all this so called imaging is keeping them safe, and we are seeing people walking through the gates with lit up private parts. I shouldn't say it, but I actually laughed when I saw these images of private areas being screened!!!! Look what Islam has reduced us to. I know that several terrorists have put blunt objects up their anal cavities to get by security, and who knows if they succeeded.

Indeed the measures put into place are Clouseau-like and deceptive. Alot of people are saying, "Oh, we don't mind going through all this screening to save lives." I say, "Look at the hours of productive time that it is being taken out of our lives," when all we need to do is profile, young male or female muslims, who are sweating, pacing, looking wide eyed and nervous, and possibly chanting in Arabic., and adopt El Al's proven record of success by Profiling.... Its called Ask the Experts!

I am amazed at the stupidity of most Americans and their lack of knowledge of the Muslims world. No wonder we are watching Commedy Circus in the Airports.... Once again complacency and apathy has enabled our enemies, and they are taking full advantage of it! Why don't we start wearing T-shirts that say, Welcome all Muslim Terrorists to America, You can use and abuse us, And we will still give you Rights under Our Court systems, so that you may pursue Jihad and get away with it!

Submitting....
