Patdown or dont? - TonyWong - MapleRipples
 

The recently public outcry of the use of patdown and screening at US airports comes not only from passengers but from airport staff as well. Infuriated with intrusive strangers feeling them up, travellers cast their ballots by choosing other means of transport, like, driving- a more dangerous sign reminding us of tens of thousands killed on the streets. Airport security officers face harsh verbal abuse and are calling for more protection from the top bosses. Everything seems all tangled up.

The highly anticipated and not-long-ago published Bush's memoir Decision Points takes us back to 11-Sep-2001, when terrorists hijacked three airplanes and flew them into the world trade center towers as well as the pentagon. Has the American people forgot all these? Why isn't it good that their government is stepping up the measures to keep them safe?

Well, no one has forgot 911. But the passage of time certainly diluted the spirit. However the key point here is that THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. When there's a bomb, or even a false alarm, criticism of the government not taking stricter control to prevent it would hit all papers and make headlines. President Bush said do what you want, when there's a problem, blame somebody else. That's the problem of democrary, another form of procrastination.

Hillary Clinton also doesn't like being touched by someone other than Bill Clinton, said, striking a balance is what this is all about... But from her voice I can only hear toothlessness.
