So by now everyone’s heard of the underwear bomber — how’d you like to go down in infamy with that title? Anyway, here’s somethings maybe you didn’t know:
– He was allowed on an international flight with an expired Visa
– He had known connections to Al Queda
– His father contacted the CIA before his flight to warn them about his son
– His name was on a terrorist watch list
So what’s our reaction to this sweeping failure of our security theater? More theater. Now you can’t go to the bathroom or listen to your iPod during the last hour of an international flight, and you may not sleep with your hands under a blanket.
Ya, that sounds like it’ll solve the problem…
