    Mr. Ridge really shouldn't have too much to say, since it was under his watch that this guys info should've been put on the NO FLY computer system. We are always soooooooo quick to JUDGE when we aren't in the HOT SEAT anylonger.

    We in the USA have been too relaxed on security measures, in the past couple of years. We all became too confident that nothing else could or was going to happen again in the USA. Wrong peope, Wrong......

    I've flown a few times out of Amsterdam and their security measures are so MUCH better then ours, here in the USA. I still think this was an inside job (maybe somebody putting the explosives on the plane for this guy, while the plane was being serviced). Maybe that's why he spent so long in the planes bathroom and just maybe he was rigging himself, after getting the stuff that was left for him.

    In reguard to "Terrorism" I am plain sick and tired of "Political Correctness" when it come to Racial Profiling...So what! Does it not bother anyone that these Terrorists come to our country and kill us? So we profile, so what!!.... If an American goes to Iran for example they don't have a problem with arresting you do they? Come on people, after 911 our world changed, and we must adapt to the changes around us. If we have to profile...then let's profile and keep our Citizens safe from these crackpots.

    The speech by Obama was long in coming and a sign of weakness as a nation by the delay.

    Closing the barn door after the cow gets out never solves the problem.
