Learn From The Israelis

Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Aug 22, 2006 at 19:53

The TSA and the airlines can learn a few things from the Israelis. EL AL Airlines for many years aways had the passangers be asked questions by members of the IDF who are employed by EL AL so as to be able to weed out any possible terrorists. If my memory is correct, they even have IDF persons onboard the airlines so as to prevent any possible terrorists problems. It would do well that both the security and airline industries in both the USA and in the west should adopt what the Israelis have done with a great deal of sucess.
