Maybe, just maybe, Congress can outlaw terrorism. That way we can board a plane on the volunteered information system. A ticket agent ASKS YOU, YOU CARRYING WEAPONS OR EXPLOSIVES?
You answer, then you board. Simple. Cheap. SortaSafe!
( the TSA jumped after the undiebomber tried to strike...the question Congress should ask, why did you jump AFTER the fact, instead of before Undie tried to blow a plane out of the air)
Then you have cargo...Congress mandated carrier inspections. TSA found some carriers doing falsified inspections...what a surprise that was. Who would have thought that the carriers employees, those guys, would stamp a form without doing the inspection!?!?!?
Meanwhile, the eyes of the world saw that. And now what...< that is the question.
AIT's aren't going away. The millimeter-wave scanner is already used by the TSA in airports in Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth and SF.Matter of fact, I think these milli-wave guys have the best lobbyists in the USA right now. Even odder, a couple of those same milli-wave lobbyists have cancer caused by X-Ray'in AITs in airports!!!!!!
I like what Mexico's answer to the TSA AIT controversy, UPBUY! That's where we need to send a sales guy pronto. Mexico is at war with the mexi-mafia, drugs= their lifeblood. The 220 can solve alot of detection issues that NO AIT can address.
