Default Re: Passengers Thwart Attempted Hijacking on Turkish Airlines Flight

I think it makes all the security measures at the airport a moronic waste of time and a show to ease the weak minds.

Now in this case, you have someone claiming to have a bomb, which makes for an interesting situation- do you choose to believe that he somehow managed to sneak a bomb past metal detectors and bag scanners and hope that his plans aren't to use the plane as a weapon or do you stomp his ass? Well played fellas.

Yeah, I highly doubt we see another 9/11 event of that magnitude ever again. 10 years later and we're arresting people oversees even before making their way to the States. One of the many positive outcomes from this war on terror.
