Feel safe?

If you think the billions of dollars we pour into security systems makes you safe,  you probably also believe the TSA does a good job.   For the umpteenth time,  we discover that  an American  went abroad to train with the jihadis,  then returned home before flying off again to murder and maim.

The counter-terrorism gurus whine about how difficult it is to track Americans overseas.  True,  so is that why are they tracking Americans in this country?   Because it’s so much easier?   And they still manage to be so misinformed, and perpetually astonished.

By the way,  this guy’s father was Palestinian,  a fine advertisement for not merely securing the borders,  but also for becoming critically selective about who we allow to come into our nation.
