Didn’t they catch the supposed terrorists, and foiled their plot? For me, this just shows that the system has worked. All the ridiculous airport security has paid off and it successfully prevented an attack. Why do we need to make things even more inconvenient for the passengers if what we had before was working just fine?
This whole thing is totally blown out of proportion. We should be happy that a threat was prevented. Instead media wants us to cower in fear. We should be patting ourselves on the back for a job well done, but instead we will be asked to give up more liberties to ensure our security.
BTW, Bush apparently doesn’t think that Homeland Security’s Severe Terror Alert is really that important. At least not as important as his vacation, because so far he has no plans of cutting it short. Why is that?
Because Bush knows a secret. The whole Terror Alert system has nothing to do with national security. It is simply a clever way to frighten unwashed masses into supporting the current administration and voting republican.
I can’t wait for the next summer thriller movie – Liquids on a Plane!

I really feel reassured that our awesome airport security is disposing of potentially explosive liquids by pouring them all into large garbage bins placed in very crowded areas. 8O What if the mix causes a violent chemical reaction? What if someone throws in a lit match into one of those bins? WTF!
