There is no such thing as "Homeland Security"as you people who believe would believe. And the system is as flawed as it ever was. Unlike in the United States, where lower-end wage workers often are the last line of defense at air terminals, airport security is viewed as a career path in many Western European countries. Security screeners are often twice as well paid and vastly better trained than their U.S. counterparts. A major police or military presence is found at airports. In Western Europe, the salary range for screeners is as much as $10 per hour higher than it is in the United States, where the crucial gatekeepers are paid $6- to $12-an-hour. To the terrorists attacking America today as on September 11, 2001 is like taking candy from a baby.

The Bush administration has long argued that the key justification for invading Iraq was to make the United States safer from terrorist attacks. A new low, 34 percent, say the war has made the country safer.
