For once, sanity prevails

To my immense relief, yesterday's post has been overtaken by events -- as well it might, given the revelation, in a Transportation Security Administration document leaked to NBC Nightly News, that "A surge in recent suspicious incidents at U.S. airports may indicate terrorists are conducting pre-attack probes and 'dry runs' similar to dress reheasals."

A warning on this document declares that it is "not to be released to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid 'need-to-know ...' " Question: If members of the public who fly commercially do not have a "valid need-to-know" that jihad terrorists are conducting "pre-attack probes and dry runs" aboard their aircraft, who the hell does?! The "insolence of office" indeed -- and the obtuseness of office as well.
