America's Security Facade (By John Guandolo)

    Travelers using U.S. airports are familiar with long lines due to TSA checkpoints, and recent reports indicate lines will get longer in the near future because of new TSA screening procedures, fewer TSA officers, and other related issues.

    R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence, tells the story of being in Israel and speaking with the Director of Security for the Ben Gurion Airport.  When Mr. Woolsey asked him what he thought the difference was between the way the Israelis and Americans handled security at airports, the Israeli replied:  "We are actually trying to catch terrorists."
