Clark Kent Ervin just now on CNN: 100% of cargo checked in UK and Israel!
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 10:07 AM by flpoljunkie
Kent said that 20% of air cargo in the United States is carried on passenger planes, and that it is not screened!

Bush administration, we are waiting for an answer why this is not being done in our country, why your administration continues to make airline travelers in this country vulnerable to terrorists.

3. Is his name really Clark Kent?
Since most "media" will be doing specials on the 5th anniversary of 9/11 one would think the lack of response/security upgrades would be an important feature but I won't hold my breath.

5. Sorry, it's actually Clark Kent Ervin, former inspector general for HS.
That's the Department of Hoomeland Security.

6. That's okay. For a moment I felt some trepidation that Superman
had turned to the dark side. :D

4. This is what people need to be screaming about....all this passenger
screening is pretty much a worthless charade.

9. Unfortunately, we need to do both, and Bush is leaving us vulnerable!
If they really meant it when they said they mean to keep us safe, they would be inspecting every last bit of cargo on our passenger flights!
