Commentary and Opinions

More than 640 million domestic air passengers hoped for a timely departure in 2012, and yet few ever considered a key part of the security process that makes timely departures possible: screening of baggage that goes into the “hold” of an airplane (more commonly known in the U.S. as “checked” baggage.) 
As I waited for a flight recently at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, I thumbed through a newspaper that had been left behind at a gate. A headline said, “Arizona 18th in U.S. in Aircraft Bird Strikes.” 
By Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) Today, we meet to discuss this nation’s progress in bringing about safety, security and resiliency against terrorism since the attacks of 9/11.  But before we look back, I want to acknowledge and remember all the firefighters, police officers, and ordinary people who lost their lives that Tuesday morning. Remembering those who died must inspire us to make this nation better and safer. 
America is immeasurably more secure today at the tenth anniversary of 9/11 because of the enormous energy, resources, leadership, planning, and blood that we have poured into our national military and domestic security efforts.  On 9/11, we lost nearly 3,000 innocent Americans, murdered while going about their daily lives. It was an attack of great cleverness, great daring, great surprise and simplicity. This was the greatest single loss of American life since the Battle of Antietam.
During the past year, the Homeland Security & Defense Business Council has issued a series of monthly papers encapsulating the major topics that have shaped our nation’s approach to homeland security. Thirteen monographs have highlighted industry and government’s joint effort to confront the challenges, and develop solutions to successfully focus on the historic mission to create a more prepared, responsive, resilient, safer and secure homeland.

Due to the limited amount of area that standard video cameras can cover while providing a sufficient level of detail, the current model for security system design relies on the use of large numbers of cameras.
