"That cannot be a pleasant task."

No, it is not pleasant. But then, it's their job. And, like any job, it ain't always pleasant, or fun. That's why they call it work, not play. And, they are handsomely paid for it, with excellent benefits and almost guaranteed job security for life, thanks to the federal government's "make work" scheme to bilk the tax payers at every opportunity and provide EEO for certain protected voting blocks.

Having said that, I agree that the whole thing is totally out of control. But, no one should be surprised. This is the same, pathetically insane government over-reaction that had national guard weekend warriors walking around with M16s in every airport in the country after 9/11, including Molokai.....

Yes, Molokai Airport, one of the few places in the developed world where you can still see WWII vintage C47s still in active service. It's like going back in time to the 1940s. You expect to see Bogart and Bacall emerging from the fog at any moment. That's how tiny, obscure and insignificant the Molokai airport is, and yet, our federal government felt it necessary after 9/11 to protect that airport from would-be terrorist attack by stationing armed national guard troops there, walking aimlessly about with their presumably loaded M16s, looking for Mohamed with a bomb strapped to his back....or, something.

It must have worked, however, because there were no reported incidents at the Molokai airport....thank God and the federal government for that miracle.

I am left wondering, however, why they don't just use more bomb detector dogs in the airports, particularly those high risk flights, i.e. big planes full of fuel at major airports, international flights, etc. I don't know, maybe they already do check the cargo, but why not have those same, proven effective dogs just walk around in the security area sniffing for explosives ON PEOPLE????!!!

And noooo, they don't even have to get close to the people to detect explosives, or anything else you'd like to detect, like, fear.

Yes, dogs can detect fear on people, especially the kind of fear that a person about to blow himself up would certainly be experiencing, even if he expects to be rewarded with 40 virgins.

Come to think of it, as rare as virgins are these days, the prospect of meeting 40 of them could also produce a certain amount of anxiety itself, but perhaps no more than the average passenger experiences going through the ridiculous security procedure with checkpoint charlie's cold hands between one's legs.

Ah yes, but using dogs...well, that would be too efficient and effective - 2 things the government is apparently incapable of.
