Terrorists Are On Our Airlines

Since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, air marshals and airline pilots have reported instances to federal authorities in which individuals behaving suspiciously appeared to be evaluating onboard security, according to congressional testimony. It is believed that terrorists continue to fly on airline routes to and within the United States to look for the weak links in the layers of the still-evolving aviation security system. The ploys have ranged from faking illnesses to disobeying orders from flight attendants to sit down to a few reported cases of individuals running toward the cockpit door in apparent efforts to flush out any air marshals from their seats. Read the rest of this story and then ask yourself why this sort of information is buried among the stories of unseasonably cold weather. There is an ongoing, demonstrative threat to our national security and we rarely hear about terrorists looking for "weak links" even in stories about the Patriot Act. What a ridiculously poor job of salesmanship.
