    We wouldn't have to worry about dogs or people, if the Authorities will start listening to the tips they are receiving once and for all. Such as the tip from the father of the Christmas Day Bomber. I do not believe this is the first time a tip was overlook on coming attacks by certain people. And still we do not learn. Once we get that one little detail fixed. Maybe the dogs won't be as much necessary. People who works in the system need to realize they cannot slack even one day after a long time after a previous attempt. The system does work, if the people who works in it don't get lazy or start slacking on their duties; whatever that might be.

    I know the Philadelphia International Arrival area has dogs sniffing the passengers that get off of International Flights. One flight I arrived on was from Amsterdam, at that time marajuana was legal over in the Netherlands and some American Teenagers got off the plane with their stash in their pocket and the dogs nabbed them.....soooooooo if they can find the drugs they can sniff out anything....

    No dog could have found the bomb, but what would find a bomb are people bording planes in other countries being carefully screened instead of all this screening of people in the U.S. going from State to State.

    Why not have dogs sniffing every single person & bag? I am willing to be searched, if it will save lives.

    However, the media has not talked much about the failure of our technology! How is it that this man is a 'person of interest', that his father goes to the U.S. embassy & tell them about his son, and red flags don't go up??? Its common sense! Everyone, anyone who is suspect, who is being watched, etc., should be on the "no-fly-list"! And how those this guy have a U.S. visa?? As soon as this man was a person of interest, our system of computers should have sent out an alert and canceled his visa! WHY is this not happening? Its been EIGHT YEARS since 9/11....... why can't we get this right?

    OK, keeping track of hundreds of thousands of names and faces is darn difficult, but why can't we post the pics and names of these suspected terrorists on the Do Not Fly List on airport walls or put their faces and names on a slide show screen so millions of passengers can help snag them?

    Post offices have the ten most wanted...why not do the same thing? There could be a real time feed update of pics by the TSA or FBI into the screen.

    I'd sure speak up if I was in line to board and saw picture of the guy next to me.

    Why not have bomb sniffing dogs at all entry points into the boarding gates of all airports into and out of our nation as well as within which ALL people must pass.
