Skip to comments.DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport controls
Posted on 03/20/2013 8:08:06 AM PDT by Doogle
A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler" status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Sources voiced concern about the decision to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which issued a report Wednesday on the under-the-radar announcement -- which was first made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after meeting in January with her Saudi counterpart. According to the IPT, this would be the first time the Saudi government has been given such a direct role in fast-tracking people for entry into the United States.

will the weirdness ever end??????
When we end it.
Or it ends us.
SAUDIS VETTING THEMSELVES to be TRUSTED TRAVELERS????? Janet Napolitano needs to be IMPEACHED!!!!!!!!
CONGRESS.....HELP!! EVen SOME Democrats have to think this is HORRIBLE!!!
John Brennan is a MUSLIM too???? Are you sure???
TRUSTED TRAVELERS???? Trusted to KILL MORE AMERICANS??? I guess that’s what this administration wants!!!
Proof positive the government should not be allowed to possess firearms.
The only reason boxcutters were effective, it that what happened was a new paradigm. These people thought that they were being hijacked. It it did not occurr to them that they were with suicide bombers and would all be killed within a few minutes if they did not act.
No one with any knife or gun even has that type of ability to do that again. People would act in a heartbeat.
and have already.
The Federal Gov (Democrats)(Republicans) are trying to provoke an armed response from Americans.
Inch by inch they'll continue on this path until somebody does something.
Then we all will pay the price.
Re: post#11, You’re absolutely right.
Brennan, in Arabic, spoke to a crowd of Arabs and in his speech he repeated the statement "in shallah"--if Allah wills.
Non muslims don't make such a statement. Here's the LINK.
Additionally, he asked the Arab audience (in Arabic) not to repeat his comments in English because it might get him in trouble.
Trouble? Why would it get him in trouble if not because it provides evidence of his conversion? Americans don't care if he is fluent in another language...but we do care if his speech provides evidence of his conversion to Islam.
So yes...Brennan is a muslim...and the CIA is in the hands of the enemy.
How can you be surprised when thinking who put this traitor into Harvard and then helped him steeling the White Hut???
Homeland inSecurity is not about Islamic terrorism. It’s about the Left’s hatred of Americans and America.
we here are trying mightily to end it before it ends us ;)
Is anyone with any authority to stop this going to stop it? Or are we Eloi and all going to be eaten?
Ramzi Yousef almost brought down an airliner with liquid explosive concealed in a “half empty contact lens solution”. That's no more than 5 ounces. His placement was luckily off because he actually hid the bomb inside a seat to detonate during the next flight. A suicide bomber placing such a bomb at the exterior of a jet would likely bring it down. Both the underwear bomber and shoe bomber had enough explosives but were luckily too stupid to detonate.
This is why we can't have more than 3 ounces of liquid and have the outline underneath our clothes scanned. However that is a STUPID approach. The question is are they really that dumb or are they truly conditioning people for random searches?
IMO, we need more chemical based detection systems rather than visual searches of everything. Bomb sniffing dogs/machines to check everything entering a plane would keep us more safe than what we have now. The deck should also be completely isolated the entire time. Pilots should have their own toilet and a small door for food. Stopping all the groping and doing these two things would eliminate 99.99% of threats.
Yeah....that figures. And all the while....they are searching, frisking and humiliating disabled veterans and children in wheelchairs.
And we’re letting them get away with it all.
WHERE IS ERIC NORDSTROM and WHY ISN"T HE SCREAMING THIS????
