"If it weren't for the fact that (more than) 5,000 people are dead, it would be comical," said Bob Monetti, who lost his son in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 and has sat on a number of federal task forces on aviation security. "Here these people have been fighting spending every penny on airport security, and now they want a bailout?"

KABA NOTE: And now they are resisting allowing citizens and pilots to help protect flights for free.

Attorney General Janet Napolitano says she wants reports on anyone who utters a racial slur.

"If you hear someone using epithets, we want to know who that person is," she said last week. "There are some people who need to be watched to prevent an act of violence, and we want to be able to do that."

It would be "perfectly legit," she said, for officers to visit people who've been reported as using slurs.

"On September 11, 2001 the world witnessed one of the most horrific criminal acts in human history.

We lost many great people that day, and many people exhibited great heroism. Other important memorials are being created to honor these heroes.

This memorial is devoted specifically to the people of United Flight 93 who courageously took control of their destiny and stopped the terrorists from using their plane as another weapon."
 

Declaring War -- a Threat to Freedom

The Constitution itself explicitly allows for only one emergency power:

"The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."

But as early as the Civil War, officials created new "temporary" powers for themselves out of whole cloth. They acted in the heat of the moment, with necessity as their defense and opposing voices few and largely muzzled by wartime passions.
 

Responding to terror with Justice, not Revenge

How should the United States react?

Finding the murderers and bringing them to justice is a logical option. Once they are positively identified, mass murderers must not be allowed to roam free.

[But] If the past is any guide, the U.S. government may respond to this attack in two counter-productive ways. American intervention overseas is likely to be stepped up, and the authorities can be expected to impose authoritarian curbs on domestic liberties.

"we hear calls to allow government to step up electronic surveillance, and to require national ID cards so that government can monitor our travels. Even before last week's bombings, the Supreme Court struck down by a slender 5-4 vote the use of thermal imaging in law enforcement. The requirement of warrants is an essential protection of civil liberty — in times of peace as well as war." --Clint Bolick, vice-president of the Washington-based Institute for Justice

"The FAA is scrambling at this moment to get sky marshals aboard commercial aircraft. But there are not nearly enough, and we are the potential victims. So why rely on full time sky marshals? Why not implement a program to allow anyone with a CHL to apply for certification as a Citizen Sky Marshall?"

"We have never allowed pilots to carry firearms on board," said Jenna Ludgate, spokeswoman for United Airlines.

But United co-pilot Aaron Benedetti, who has received specialized firearms training for pilots from the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada disagrees with his employer's policy ...if the airline allowed its pilots to carry side arms, "United could once again claim they fly the friendly skies."

"Democrats thought the Schumer amendment was something that would not stir up people on the outside. But all of a sudden, lots of faxes and e-mails from GOA activists started pouring into their offices, and the idea was shelved. Great work! We'll let you know if Schumer makes another attempt in the future."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. — Charlton Heston
