Time for profiling

December 27, 2009

Logic fail.

Somehow it has been decided that because the incompetent Nigerian Christmas Day bomber tried to explode his bomb within the last hour of his international flight, all future bombers will try and do the exact same thing.  Because the bomber tried to light his explosive device while covered in a blanket, the next bomber will try and do the exact same thing.  Thus, we will protect air travelers by making everyone remain seated for the last hour of the flight, preventing visits to the washrooms during the last hour of flight and by disallowing blankets and things covering one’s laps, during the final hour of flight.

during the final hour of flight customers must remain seated, will not be allowed to access carry-on baggage, or have personal belongings or other items on their laps

Oh perfect.  Because terrorists would never try to explode a bomb , say, one hour into a flight.  Right?  Idiots.

“I really was surprised,” one passenger, Eva Clesle, said about the level of scrutiny in Frankfurt, adding that officials had inspected backpacks by opening “every single zip.”

Well not every single zip.  Shouldn’t we all take off our underwear before passing through security now?

    I’m dreading our upcoming flights if they continue with this nonsense.

    I guess that we’ll have to take bathroom trips at exactly 65 minutes before ETA and have books ready to read.

    Why don’t they just search Muslims extra hard since last time I checked no one else has been trying to bomb planes. If anyone doesn’t like it they can either stop flying or get their friends down at the local mosque to stop blowing things up.
