And as Bruce Apparently Hits the Nail on the Head

In one of the various op-eds that minnehaha B posted links to the other day, he pointed out that profiling and frequent flyer cards that allow a class of users to be subject to less stringent security at airports simply mean that the terrorists will recruit people who don't fit the profile and will find ways to acquire the frequent flyer IDs.

It seems that Russia just found this out, if reports are correct. They now suspect that the two planes that went down there the other night were the victims of terrorist bombs carried on the planes by women. Apparently they don't usually frisk the women.
