  • So When will Dick Cheney be charged with Espionage? His Crime was the Same as Snowden's
  • Wikileaks: Israel Plans Total War on Lebanon, Gaza
    • Your information is totally incorrect! The USS Liberty incident proves my point. That ship was taken out by the Israeli airforce because it had electronically evesdropped on Israeli military communications and knew that Israel had started the 1967 war, not Egypt.

    • The GOP will attempt to do what they did in the 2006 war except hopefully Mrs. Clinton won't reprise the role of that Rice woman as she prevented the UN Security Council from acting until 1300 Lenanese were dead and the IDF had proven itself incompetent.

  • Looking for PETN, Scanning Grandma at the Airport, and the Future of Air Travel
    • With respect to cargo which could be dangerous, couldn't cargo containers much like the metal ones used in some planes today be redesigned using a form of titanium or other substance such as teflon coated fiberglass with stronger tensile properties which could contain a moderate explosion? The comments above discuss how little amount of some explosives are needed to bring down a modern aircraft. Surely in such small amounts a new form of cargo container could be created to prevent that result.

    • Also Andrew, consider the effect of blowing up an airport security lounge. It could destroy the airline business except for, perhaps cargo. Airports themselves would become no go zones.

    • D. Mathews has it right on the money! Instead of treating the symptoms of terrorism, treat the disease by removing the US military from the MiddleEast.

    • Nel, you are 100% correct. I hope some government elites see your comment and act on it.

    • These types of scans and intimate molestations will not stop or even deter extremists ready to die for their religion or countries. The terrorists are not made in Afghanistan or Iraq, they are made in the good old USA. Oh, they don't necessarily reside in the US but they are definitely made there. The TSA egregious policies are the tip of the iceburg as to how US foreign policy affects every citizen personally. There may be new terrorist attacks in America unless the US ceases its wars against Muslim countries in the Middle East. Every day the US continues to occupy Middle East countries, a hundred new terrorists are recruited. Doesn't the American goverment understand that? My goodness I know oil is very important but can't the US just buy it like all other countries? Why does it have to commandeer it and control it, no matter where it is? As for the TSA and its unconstitutional searches, please explain to me how they prevent a determined terrorist from simply blowing up the security area of the airport before they get anywhere near the scanners. Carrying out an attack in that venue would destroy the airline industry because airports would suddenly be no go areas.
