Its not that America is safe because of their security polices, its that the terrorist are not trained enough to complete their plans.

WE ARE WAY TOO LAX ON OUR LAWS WATCHING THE PEOPLE COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY FROM ARAB COUNTRIES. YES WE NEED TO PROFILE IF WE WANT TO SURVIVE. IN TEXAS THIS WHY WE ARE ARMING OURSELVES. NORTH EAST,, BEST OF LUCK.

I was trying not to be worried, but since these two incidents I am very concerned.
My oldest son, his wife and my four grandchildren received an all expense paid trip to the Poconos and then they will be in New York for the week prior to New Year's Day. I realize that life goes on but I worry that these are such high profile targets.
In an effort to look as if America is on top of the situation, Homeland Security has made the American people jump through I do not know how many hoops at airports.
I still do not believe that America's law enforcement has a handle on this yet. With all due respect to law enforcement, in the end I don't believe that there is a thing that they can do. Maybe show up with chalk to outline your body. Our leadership in Washington, or the lack thereof isn't helpful either. America just keeps plodding along from one incident to another.
