Keith is right - none of this threat it new. We hear reports on an almost weekly basis of how our airports and other facilities still are not secure. No matter how hard Bush, Cheney, Mehlman or any of the wingnut talking heads try to spin it, our level of security really hasn't improved that much.

Can you help us out?
