Crews Want Security Suspicions Analyzed (from Avweb)

Pilots and flight attendants want a central repository for reports about people who ask too many questions, follow them in airports and take pictures on their airplanes just in case those involved aren't merely curious, going the same way or have a few extra frames of film to use. Some suspicious employees tell their union, others their employer and some of the reports do reach the Transportation Security Administration's Terrorist Threat Integration Center. But a recent report by an independent group claims the center doesn't have the staff or resources to make use of the data. "We'd like all reports of unusual events to be going directly to the government for analysis," Chris Witkowski, a spokesman for the Association of Flight Attendants, told the Associated Press. In the security-oriented environment in which flight and cabin crews work these days, many notice things that don't seem right. "Right now, we are sitting on piles of information and creating this database and we're fearful it's going nowhere," said Paul Rancatore, deputy chairman of the Allied Pilots Association's security committee.

Paranoia is heading its way.....

I can already see how the "men in black" are interrogation little Billyboy after he asked a question only because he was excited about aircrafts......
while the middle aged muslim men who might really act suspicious are let go because one has to be political correct.....

No, "America" isn't bad, Artsyman, it's just the politics that is bad.

Already saw www.unansweredquestions.org, Arts? Think about it!

What will be the next 'security measure'? Not allowing anyone - including official Americans - into or out of the country? Grounding all planes? You do, of course, need to implement plans, but some seem to go far beyond rational thought.

What if wee little Jimmy, aged 5, wanted to know how many seats the aircraft held? He asks the FA. Oh no - he's arrested and held in police custody for ages......

 Wink/being sarcastic Just kidding, at least with my second paragraph. And no - America is not bad, before someone says that.
