Fly Me I’m Easy

WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas aired Monday night a shocking report about security at the giant and enormously important Dallas/Fort Worth airport. They got video of construction workers gaining access to the site without showing their badges; of unmarked trucks, including a fuel tanker, motoring onto the site; and of an unsecured perimeter. For 15 minutes, the reporter and her crew stood just outside the runway fence where, had they been terrorists with shoulder-launched missiles, they would have had a clean shot at departing aircraft. Nobody bothered to notice them. They found the security guard — sleeping in his car! This is a scandal. When asked if we should be worried, one of our local Congressmen said on camera that there are plenty other higher-profile terrorist targets in the DFW area. Gee thanks, I feel much better.
