Today Thomas Sowell shares some thoughts on airport “security”. My favorite part came from the middle of the essay:

As for the excuse of “security,” this is one of the least security-minded administrations we have had. When hundreds of illegal immigrants from terrorist-sponsoring countries were captured crossing the border from Mexico– and then released on their own recognizance within the United States, that tells you all you need to know about this administration’s concern for security.

When captured terrorists who are not covered by either the Geneva Convention or the Constitution of the United States are nevertheless put on trial in American civilian courts by the Obama Justice Department, that too tells you all you need to know about how concerned they are about national security.

He’s got that right! You can read the whole article here.

    What do you all think of Ron Paul’s American Traveler Dignity Act?

    As a resident of the Land of Enchantment, where anyone can get a drivers license I am the first one to stand up. And DH made a very good point last night. If this was so important, these kinds of measures would have been put in right after last Christmas when the Underwear Bomber was caught, just like the liquids were 3 years ago. And I’ll say it again, because NO ONE is saying it….the Shoe Bomber and Underwear Bombers did not start their trips in the US. They were in Europe. Why are US citizens being made to suffer because France can’t screen at the airport?
