    As it becomes clearer ISIS was responsible for the downing of a Russian jetliner over the Sinai peninsula two weeks ago, U.S. government officials and leaders are expressing growing concerns about airport security here at home. "This is a major game changer,” House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul said in a recent interview about the situation. "They [ISIS] have the capability, if proven true, to down aircrafts with bombs. That concerns me a great deal because traditionally they've been focused on the caliphate, not external operations. This is a very significant departure from that mission and one that I think...

Chattanooga, the site of the latest Muslim terror attack against America, is a preferred community for resettlement along with Knoxville and Nashville. Nashville was designated a Gateway City for Iraqis. Hundreds of Somali Muslims were dumped in Shelbyville and the Murfreesboro Mega-Mosque became national news because of its terror ties.

The Commies are of course famous for getting things done, even if the things are broken, don't work and aren't actually useful. The USSR got a lot of things done that didn't need doing. The end result were actual environmental catastrophes that liberals don't like talking about. Meanwhile here their infrastructure projects are unworkable and can't get done because of their own senseless environmental reviews in which you have to spend years and millions of dollars on consultants just to repair a bridge.

    As the graphic from TSA shows, they interdicted over 2,200 firearms, mostly loaded, from travelers' carry-on bags, holsters, pockets and a few other places and items last year. No doubt most of the interdicted firearms were those inadvertently brought into the security checkpoint by someone who otherwise could legally carry the firearm. The top ten airports are all in places with lots of permit holders. Three in Texas, three in Florida, one each in Arizona, Georgia, Tennessee, and Colorado.

Enforcers at the Airport decided that they would punish his statement. Because of surveillance video, it became clear that Dr. Steinmetz had not broken any law. Instead, it was likely that the police had broken the law with false arrest. This did not put Dr. Steinmetz in the clear. Prosecutors have extremely strong immunity.

    An email has been making the rounds for at least 3-4 years which claims the world's best airport securityteam at Ben Gurion, Israel has deployed a next generation 'simple solution' for a complex problem... Namely, a special bomb-proof security booth that requires passengers to enter with sealed-doors behind them, as an electronic device detonates any explosives they may have on their person (better hope you left that Bic lighter in the tray!). And although some seemed to have bought into it, thetruth is that the story was long-ago disproven -if Snopes is to be believed, anyway. I've never travelled...

    Tired of long lines at TSA airport checkpoints? Today, the Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) began a transition to private security screeners rather than Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners in a change that promises more efficient security measures. SFB just joined the TSAs Screening Partnership Program (SPP) that allows airports to replace TSA screeners with more flexible and cost-effective screening services provided by private companies and overseen by the TSA. While this may seem strange to many Americans who have grown accustomed to TSA-manned checkpoints, it really isnt abnormal for airports to manage their own security with government regulation and...

    The Islamic State and its tribal allies have dominated Anbar since a surprise offensive last December, but this weeks push was particularly worrisome, because for the first time this year Islamist insurgents were reported to have become a major presence in Abu Ghraib, the last Anbar town on the outskirts of the capital.

    A U.S. citizen who died fighting for ISIS reportedly had a job in one of the places where you would least want him to be a major American airport. Before fleeing to Syria, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29, worked a cleaning job at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport that gave him security clearance with access to the tarmac and planes, KMSP reported. Several sources told the Minneapolis station the traitor was employed by Delta Global Services, a subsidiary of Delta Airlines. It is unclear when Muhumed left Minnesota to join the thugs who have been spreading terror throughout northern Iraq and Syria....

He is a passionate supporter of freedom in...

    The vintage international lounge at the Gander airport in central Newfoundland is a time capsule where Italian marble and designer furniture still exude the faded glamour of world travel. Its a vast room, its iconic yellow sofas whimsically arranged on a mezzanine overlooking terrazzo floors and sleek blue chairs where VIPs ranging from global leaders to the Beatles once stopped on transatlantic flights. It was opened by the Queen as a showcase of Canadian modernity in 1959. But the growing costs of preserving this cultural touchstone have raised the prospect that a more practical, smaller terminal will replace it. We...
