You are confusing perception with risk. All the necessary security procedures were in place before 9-11-----they just weren't used and thus the reason for the pay-off to the victim's families-----to avoid a massive law suit that would have exposed the astounding negligence of the airlines, the FBI, the CIA, and two presidents and their staff. All security measures after 9-11 is strictly CYA!!!
