The American Airlines ticket counter was apparently the first target of the terrorists. This is one of the soft spots of any airport. The last drill CTI conducted for a major airport involved the ticket counters area.
As the results of the drill showed, the chaos and
lack of response capabilities to these attacks are very evident. We
have many protocols that can be used to ramp up security at and beyond
the screening checkpoint, but far fewer prior to that.
airports and TSA have people trained to recognize terrorists and other
bad guys setting up to conduct these types of events in the planning
stage, and hopefully will recognize pre-attack surveillance prior to an
event here in the USA.
