The threat is real, and evolving, we need to understand that it seems to be backed by specific intelligence received, TSA and others are going to extreme lengths to find a way to insure the device(s) can be detected. The problem is some countries have larger numbers of sympathetic employees to radical Islamic causes. For instance in Egypt the Muslim Brother Hood has large numbers of sympathizers working at the airports and other critical areas around the country. It is very difficult to determine insider threats, and radical Islam has low income workers at airports around the world. The US is not immune to this problem, a 54 year old recently converted to Islam, and then moved into radical Islamic beliefs had been working at a medium to small US airport in the heart of our country for years. Luckily for the US his first forays into radical activities was picked up by a FBI staffer and his comment " I have this access to an airport, and think it is my duty to Islam to exploit the vulnerability. " was enough to get the FBI to follow this man's activities and then arrest him as he finally approached the airport with a vehicle he thought was filled with explosives. We all need to be a little more patient with TSA till the threat can be averted, which may never happen, but we hope will.
