We are doing pretty good on this war on terror, hopefully it will be as successful as the war on drugs

Well at least we can be certain that if they boarded any flights, they did so without bottles of water.

God Bless 9/11

Before it was that putting suspected terrorists on a watchlist violated their Constitutional Rights (even though most were not U.S. citizens).
Now some people are off of the list and you're still not happy.

Tell me what you want, Lindsey. Tell me what you want!

Well, it's obvious you should have updated the list.

Twenty known or suspected terrorists were not correctly listed on the government's consolidated watch list, ...

That would explain why my mom can just prance across the border anytime she wants.

You know, these are sad times. Articles like this don't even raise eyebrows anymore. We (many of us at least) have come to expect gross incompetence from our government. Sheeple passing through airports just abandon their bottled water and insulin kits because some minimum wage asshat in a polyester uniform tells them to while Sheik Abba Ben Hooha walks past another uniformed Bozo checking grandma's wheelchair. Don't bother waking up, sheeple, you won't like what you see anyhow.

This is why it's important to update your mailing address, magazine subs, etc. when you move.

That's all fine, but Al Qaeda has a media production company? When can I see the remake of Porky's, with burquas?

United States of America,

well if we captured all the terrorists then we wouldn't have anything to war against.

OriginalReaper: well if we captured all the terrorists then we wouldn't have anything to war against.

How about drugs or poverty. You know, the other things that we've had successful wars against.

Well, we've got a long way to go before the average American agrees with the people in this thread and make a political issue out of winning back their liberty. A long way to go. One terror attack and forget it.

lajimi: Sheeple passing through airports just abandon their bottled water and insulin kits


Just like a terrorist to biatch about your precious "insulin" and your "water". Up against the wall.

Funny has the TSA ever once found one drop of binary explosive? Out of all that water. They would not know of coarse because they treat it like the harmless trash they know it to be.
Oh, and what do you do when they ask for your water Mr. Nonsheeple person?

Except drugs, germs, shark attacks, x-mas, science, easter etc. etc.

Also, found this (new window) little gem while googling.

Politics aside, it doesn't bode well for the future of our nation, when we have trouble organizing what amounts to a Word document...

We should start a, "what's worse than..." thread. What's worse than sitting on your grandfather's lap...?

/or not

don't forget political opponents on the watchlist

Uh, responsibility from the airlines, real security measures behind the scenes (can't count the number of stories on people just walking around in the back areas of airports), real security training for TSA (failed 19 out of 22 critical tests in the last year).

Oh yeah, and the end of a watch list that has clearly been used for political harrassment.

/that should do it
//anyone who can't see this list is BS is a complete farktard

Its your govt. for ya ( the U.S. one, obviously ).
Seriously, if they let that girl scout leader be put on the list because she brought those knives on the plane, I don't doubt this.(what you want me to link it to the story? that sounds like work ) The govt. has never been the kind to be "just" overzealous, but overzealous and full of red tape non-sense. Since i dont feel like searching for political godwins, this might as well go up.

From the Farking Article:

The report comes on the same day al Qaeda's media production company announced that Osama bin Laden is about to appear in a new video.

al Queda has a "media production company"? Do they do television commercials when the terrorist message production business is at a seasonal low?

Garbage in, garbage out.

Simple, I just don't fly anywhere unless I absolutely have to and then I just finish my water before I have to deal with the ill mannered and poorly trained "security" kiddies.
Who needs the hassles? There's really nowhere I want to go that I can't drive or take the train to if necessary.

/Only terrorists can't tell the difference between "coarse" and "course"
