In a word, no.
I just wrote a lot about the FAA in another post, and I won't make anyone read it all again. But I tihnk that they are perhaps the BIGGEST government bureacracy we have in this nation. They're worthless. They- and this has become painfully obvious- aren't protecting us. And then, when this whole thing happens, they come up with totally ridiculous things like, "No one without a ticket through security" and "no knives in secure areas."
Honsetly, those hijackers had plane tickets. They would have made it through. And, no knives? That's dumb. Restaurants now have to use plastic knives. MAYBE- here's an idea- let's just spend the money and put metal detector AT the gates (in addition to where they already are of course) to detect knives and such.
Those are my ideas, anyone is welcome to shoot them down.
