FBI worried about new terrorism tactics.
There are recent FBI warnings
about the fact that Al-Qaeda may Use new methods to hijack or bomb airplanes. To tell you the truth, I'm not that worried about this. Yes, Airplanes still remain a target, but Right now, everyone is looking at Airlines and Air safety. In short, they have made the airplane a much, much more difficult target.
I'm more afraid that Terrorist groups would target other places, like Stadiums and Daycare Centers
or maybe the food/water supply, or a Dam, or something else. Yes, they are homocidal maniacs, but they aren't idiots. There are Hundreds of thousands of good terrorist targets that are not defended as well as Airlines and Airports are right now.
Petroleum pipelines or Tank Farms such as the one in Greensboro, NC, Storage or transport mechanisms for Toxic Chemicals
, Hospitals, Malls, etc. etc.
Right now, I think we are past the point of diminishing returns when it comes to Airline safety. Taking away nail clippers and tweezers isn't doing any good at all. Instyead, we need to make more of an effort at infiltrating and eliminating Terrorist groups, both here and overseas in the countries that fund them.
