Commentary and Opinions

By John ByrnesCurrent systems are failing usCurrent systems in place to identify and manage individuals like Major Nidal Malik Hasan, whose alleged massacre took the lives of 13 soldiers and wounded 29 others, and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit on Christmas Day are not working!

Leaving Seattle recently, I was in for a surprise. As six of my colleagues and I stood in line for an airport security check, we were all told to step aside for secondary screening. They wanted to search our turbans -- mandatory religious articles of our Sikh faith. Each of us was pulled out of line while other passengers stared at the group being corralled. As several screeners investigated our turbans, the wasted time and resources made me uneasy.
