Yahoo! News - Bring back private screeners: "Private screeners were made the scapegoats for the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy. Actually, the federal government was at fault for failing to set standards and enact rules that could have prevented the hijackings. On Sept. 11, no federal rules were in place to stop hijackers from carrying box cutters or plastic knives onto aircraft, nor were there uniform standards for private screeners."
While I wasn't actively blogging in those days, I did say the very same thing back then!!
