I am a frequent air traveler but have not had my weapon of mass destruction padded down yet.
The disaster will possibly happen on the ground now, instead of in the air.
This was a topic of conversation I had recently with some co-workers. With the security lines increasing and people bogged together and all carrying bags it would be no problem for a group of terrorist to walk in with a sack full of grenades, ammo and Mac 10's and really put a hurting on people at the security check points. Most large passenger jets carry about 300 people compared to the several thousand clogged into a major airport security checkpoint. Seems to me a metal detector should be at the entrance of the airport first and foremost.
Unfortunately we are paralyzed by political correctness. For my money all Muslim men between the ages of 13 and 90 should be inspected and scrutinized. It's not profiling it's common sense. Considering that radical Muslim men would consider this homosexual behavior if padded down by a male and extremely unacceptable if done by an infidel woman. Also consider that if a radical Muslim's woman was felt up by an infidel they would be stoned.
I actually don't mind the scanners or the possibility of being felt up as I think it does actually make air travel safer both literally and as a deterrent to radical Muslims. Know your enemy. If all enhanced searches were conducted by "Christian" females it would work better as a Muslim deterrent and meet far less resistance from us law abiding folk.
