If we were not so afraid of being politically correct, there would be plenty
of money for Air Marshals. We are spending all of our money, scrutinizing people
who are not going to hijack airplanes (Dick Butkis, Ray Charles, Ect. . . ).
Yes I saw these people singled out for extra scrutiny when I was working security
The FFDO program is probably one of the cheapest programs we have, with real
potential at accomplishing something. At least we are not targeting innocent
individuals with the FFDO program.
If we concentrated our resources on the profile (yes a nasty word) of terrorist,
we could have half the security and prevent acts of terrorism. We also need
to stop Muslims from coming to this country until we find a better way of telling

No airliner takes off without two pilots and at least three flight >attendants.
How is it possible to mandate that and not be able to >mandate two sky marshals?

two pilots, how much would the trip total >cost go up with two sky marshals?
A percent or two, maybe.
The FFDO program is as poorly conceived and implemented as the rest of >the
TSA's post-911 panic reaction.
