Syria Threat Could Prompt Changes at Airports

The Obama administration may ask overseas partners to enhance security measures at airports and is weighing whether to do the same here at home to address deepening concerns that terrorists in war-ravaged Syria are trying to develop a new generation of bombs that could be smuggled onto commercial planes, ABC News has learned.

"(This threat) is different and more disturbing than past aviation plots," one source said.

The issue was discussed this past week at the White House during a meeting of top-level officials from intelligence agencies, sources said.

1. good looking out

 

Perhaps we could appropriate funds from border control to ramp up tsa checkpoint efforts at airports. Things like 100% body scanning and more random body searches. Its the only thing we can do if we want to remain free.

2. Or even better yet, ship our luggage on another plane, following at a safe distance, with passengers

flying naked. That sure would make one feel free.
