The two jetliners that crashed into the WTC on Sept. 11, took off from Logan International Airport in Boston. Now the head of security at that airport has been ousted. See story at: [url]http://boston.com/dailyglobe2/272/metro/FAA_s_security_chief_out_at_Logan+.shtml[/url] Blurb from article - Mary Carol Turano, criticized by some present and former field agents as a weak manager, was reassigned three days after the Globe inquired about her lack of an airport identification badge that would have permitted her to gain unescorted access to secure areas of the airport that she oversaw. [b]FAA officials in Washington were dumbfounded to discover that Turano, who had been on the job for more than two years, did not have a security badge as of Sept. 11.[/b] One official familiar with airport security procedures likened it to "a general who does not have a visa to get into Bosnia and all his troops are there. An organization does well what a commander checks, and how can you check what they do if you don't have a ramp access badge?" "I'm sure that had something to do with this," said one FAA official, speaking of Turano's reassignment. [b]She didn't even have a security badge and she was in the front lines of protecting our country's commercial airliners![/b] First, let's check to see if she's had any large deposits into her checking account in recent months! Say from some Middle Eastern Charity group linked to Bin-Laden! Next, fire her butt!! She has no business in the security business!! Eric The(ThisExplainsALot!)Hun[>]:)]

Please. Liek the person who replaces her will be any better. They will continue to confiscate people nail clippers and such, but the planes will still be crawling with minimum wage earning ground support personnel. The food caterers will have access, the vaccumers will still have access and a dozen other "temp" type workers will have access. And you and I will have to show up 3 hours early for a forty minute flight. Do you think anything really has changed?

It's "Hanoi Jane Fonda's" fault.
