Airport Workers to be Screened, Too

Since we had some workers try to blow up ten or twenty planes coming to the US, I guess it's about time.
Hatfield says the new measures are being expanded to airports nationwide. "it's not because we have suspicions about the employees, but we know they represent a body of people that terrorists can hide among," he said.

Sources say that the London terror plot foiled in August prompted U.S. officials to ramp up security after United Kingdom officials disclosed that some of the men arrested were airport workers. Until today, airport workers in the U.S. only went through an initial background check in order to get hired.

"I understood that they went through security background checks, but now I feel a lot better knowing that they are being screened," said air traveler J.D. McGraw.

Here's another idea that might help foil some terrorists: Close the Borders to Smuggling, Contraband, and Trespassers.

What a concept, again!
