Especially to the US, only going to get worse with more and more delays at immigration. They should grade people and have different lines for each grade. Those like myself who have been travelling to the states for 30 years should not have to queue with the ones who are obviously dodgy and cause huge delays by not having correct paperwork etc etc.

Surely The Enterprise is equipped with far superior scanning technology than most aircraft ? You should be safer than most of us Mr Spock.

i really fail to see why they do not people profile when searching. Its just not giving the best security possible and that is not right

People profiling is un PC and the lilly livered people in charge (both labour and soon to be Tories) wont have the bottle to instigate it.

time to do things by conference call - no travel to US for me for the time being :-)

Why cant we have two security bays at airports, one for Caucasians and one for the others while they negotiate security?
That would speed things up and centre attention where it is positively alive with potential terrorists.
Results to date indicate that every airline bomber would have come under closer scrutiny using this perfectly logical approach.

Profiling makes no sense as it would reduce the security checks performed on white males, and i'm sure there are a few white extremist Muslims who would love to waltz through airport security. While they seem to be incredibly incompetent, i'm sure even they could take advantage of this gift.

You have an excellent poiny there crips,staggeringly obvious and it may even generate some sensible response from decent muslims who would have to challenge the extremists within to stop this stupidity in the name of God.

Makes logical sense to presume a man to be more likely to be a terrorist than a woman so a special security bay for men too.

I love the way crappen uses "caucasians" instead of white, as if it somehow masks the fact that he is proposing segregation and treating people as second class for having a different skin pigmentation.

and treating people as second class for having a different skin pigmentation.

I can't see which group you are referring to when you say second class?

Love going to America. Next time I go will look at the new BA business class only plane at London Airport. Only room for 32 people I think. Surely , THEY wouldn't bother with that ?

It is only a matter of time before the terrorist community decide attacking USA on flights to there is too difficult and they turn their attention to softer tourist targets. The record of bomb attacks in Iraq and elsewhere should tell us that they will strike anywhere to satisfy their all consuming hatred of anything that isn't radically Islamic. Next year may be Tenerife,etc. Ironic isnt it that they may have the same effect as eco terrorists in preventing air travel ?

Most extremist muslims are busy killing other extremist muslims in Pakistan and Iraq at the moment, when they run out of people to kill there I'm sure we'll be in for another attack.
