Imaging complicates the job of the terrorists, as does profiling. I can see how imaging would be useful.-

in response to reader comment: Imaging complicates the job of the terrorists, as does profiling

I am all for anything that complicates the terrorists Jihad attempts. I also believe that Behavioral profiling would be useful. I listened to Isaac Yeffet from El Al Airlines speak the other night, and he said there are clear and distinct behaviors to look for. He also said we should learn from our mistakes on 911, Pan Am over Lockerbee, possibly TWA Flight 800, (I don't think they ever said whether it was a wiring problem, or that the navy really saw a Heat-Seeking missile hit the plane. There is also more to come out about Northwest Flight 188, and its overshoot of the runway in its destination to Minneapolis airport. The report summary from the NTSB says that "Both pilots stated in interviews that during the flight, they both heard "chatter" on the radio frequencies, but did not recall hearing their call sign, and that the amount of ATC radio calls was no more than usual. Very suspicious! Was someone jamming the frequency, so they could communicate. I have to say there are some pretty clueless people in charge of our National Security at this Time.

I would even suggest that Ladies, Moms, and Grannies, cooperate with Security. Let them check your Bras if they need to Ladies. This will no doubt get a rise from the women. My point is that the terrorists want to do anything to disrupt our lives and the way our world functions. If they can embarass us, stop us from using the John 1 hour before arrival, and cause chaos in the skies, that is what they will do. This is Jihad from Islam, It is not just a crime, it is a war to eliminate everyone who don't agree with the Islamic religion! We will do what we need to do, (Inconvenienced if need be.)

I really think Daniel made a great point about Security Theater though!
