    Well, this is Fox "News", so you have to take it with a grai^H^H^H^H boulder of salt.

    Still, though, this is beyond ridiculous. Land of the free, my ...

    Well, it's better than profiling, but I think common sense tells us such a system is loaded with flaws.

    Battelle Memorial Institute
    received a FAST M2 contract in FY '07 to fabricate a portable research and test facility based on a reconfigurable, modular design for behavioral screening demonstrations and as a potential screening facility for operational use. The facility is slated for deliver later this year.

    Holy.

    This actually scares me...

    Which makes me wonder... (please understand I don't mean to sound rude!) Are Americans so worried about "terrorism", that threats such as these from their own government seem justifiable? It just seems to me, an outsider looking in, that so-called terrorist acts are the least of your worries. Especially when your rights and freedoms, are being so blatantly infringed upon! And I'm saying Americans, but for all I know that's happening in Canada too, so I guess I wonder about everyone...

    I know that my family would like to visit the states, but we're actually affraid of the security and being racially profiled and such, so we don't. I find it very unfortunate.

    this was in preparation for quite a while now. Saw it on a German TV documentary about anti terrorist action in the US maybe a year ago or even longer ago.

    #1 I've never felt a "sense of foreboding" while traveling except when going through the damned security crap. I'm more afraid of failing a test than a terrorist activity. The only thing I fear that isn't in my personal sphere is cops (because even if they're a minority the bad ones are worse than criminals) and the government (because it believes the worst in man). Psychos and criminals are fairly predictable because unless they're organized they're weak and if they're organized well they're organized which implies predictable.

    It is true, many people not planning anything bad feel uneasy when in contact with security. Hence they appear suspect ;)

    I know someone, who almost always gets picked out of the queue and gets extra screening just because he appears a bit nervous.
