TODAY IN TRAVEL:5 Ways to Fix the TSA Pat Down Problem

November 17, 2010 5:20 pm by Carl Unger

A lot has been said about the TSA's new body scanner/pat down policy, and most of it has been negative. Lots of people, myself included, have

written or spoken at length about why the policies are bad, and many have called on the TSA to ditch the scanners and pat downs entirely. OK, but what should the TSA do instead? It's a difficult question to answer, but a crucial part of the conversation. After all, if we're going to criticize, we should be able to offer solutions or alternatives, right? To that end, I reached out to several airline security experts and critics, and asked them what the TSA should do instead of scanning and patting down travelers. Here are five ideas of where to start:
Dr. Andrew R. Thomas, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Transportation Security; assistant professor of international business, University of Akron: "At its core, the transportation security strategy of the United States is overwhelmingly a law enforcement one. That is, what we do at our airports is inherently reactive and designed to prevent the last attack. This is the rationale for the 'naked x-rays' and new 'pat down.' The remedy for this bad course is to change the operational mission of the TSA and focus on risk reduction through pro-active measures such as broader intelligence gathering, knowledge management, and enhanced coordination with international partners. This will require leadership from the President and Congress to take the emphasis of the TSA away from being simply a passenger screening organization. Unfortunately, this does not appear on the horizon. And, with al qaeda having successfully tested and deployed the body-cavity bomb, there is a day in our future where multiple passengers on multiple planes will be blown up. Given the current trajectory of our current aviation security strategy, the response will 'logically' be the body-cavity searches of millions of innocent passengers. And then, maybe here, the necessary changes will finally occur." Patrick Smith, pilot and author, Ask the Pilot: "[Scanners] are part of what has become an unsustainable security strategy: That is, treating each and every passenger ... as potential terrorists, and attempting to inspect their bodies and belongings for each and every possible weapon. This simply isn't a realistic approach in a country where more than two million people fly daily.The body scanners are part of an arms race. First came Richard Reid and so we all need to take our shoes off; then came the underwear bomber and so now we're body-scanned and/or groped? What might be next? We cannot protect ourselves from every conceivable threat, and we need to acknowledge that while focusing on a security strategy that is efficient, reasonable, and effective, and in tune with the hierarchy of threat. What we have right now is none of those things. We are literally strip-searching the entire flying public, from preschoolers to pilots, and rifling through their bags for things—knives and scissors—that are harmless in the first place. All of this while freight from overseas goes uninspected for bombs and explosives."
Robert Poole, Director of Transportation Policy, Reason Foundation: "Intrusive screening of everyone is inherent in the TSA's current approach, which treats all air travelers as equally likely to be a threat. The only feasible way to remove body-scanning (or the intrusive pat down alternative) as standard procedure is to change TSA's screening model to one that is risk-based. In practice, that would mean separating air travelers (other than those on the No-Fly list, who are automatically denied passage) into three basic groups:
1. Trusted Travelers, who have passed a background check and are issued a biometric ID card that proves (when they arrive at the checkpoint) that they are the person who was cleared. This group would include cockpit crews and anyone holding a government security clearance, anyone already a member of DHS's Global Entry, Sentri, and Nexus, and anyone who applied and was accepted into a new Trusted Traveler program). These people would get to bypass regular security lanes upon having their biometric card checked, subject only to random screening of a small fraction.
2. High-risk travelers, either those about whom no information is known or who are flagged by the various DHS intelligence lists as warranting 'Selectee' status. They would be the only ones facing body-scanner or pat down as mandatory, routine screening.
3. Ordinary travelers—basically everyone else, who would go through metal detector and put carry-ons through 2-D X-ray machines. They would not have to remove shoes or jackets, and could travel with liquids. A small fraction of this group would be subject to random 'Selectee'-type screening.
This type of risk-based screening would focus TSA resources on the travelers most needing scrutiny, by reducing the use of resources on low-risk travelers. It would also save considerable sums in both screener payroll and equipment costs; no more body scanners would be purchased, since TSA already owns enough to use only for the secondary screening needed for the above program.
As for TSA claims that Trusted Traveler would be too risky, they cannot make that claim with a straight face, for two reasons. First, their parent agency DHS operates the three border-crossing programs noted above (Global Entry, Sentri, and Nexus) which operate on exactly the same principle. Second, TSA itself applies this principle for the hundreds of thousands of people who work at airports and need access to secure areas to do their jobs. Those people must pass an FBI criminal history background check, which entitles them to an ID card giving them unescorted access to secure airport areas. Some of these people have access to planes on the tarmac, which means they could do damaging things to those planes. Yet TSA accepts this risk trade-off."
Fred Gevalt, Executive Producer, Please Remove Your Shoes: "Since we released our film, I’m asked quite frequently for a solution. Today my message to TSA would be simple: 'Stop it. Just stop it.' TSA has become a government jobs program. Give them all shovels and let them repair America’s roads. We had prior knowledge of Pan Am 103, the jihadists of 9/11, the shoe bomber and the Christmas bomber. We need better application of intelligence. We don’t need the new airport routine. Let Americans travel freely at the airport, and let the CIA, NSA, and FBI do their jobs. We can handle risk. After all, isn’t this the land of the free and the home of the brave? I think that TSA has arrived at the end of the road. There is no systematized, conclusive way to scan, vet, or guarantee whatever it is they want to guarantee. They need to start profiling, where profiling is not racial as much as profiling those passengers they don't know anything about. Having said that, it will require brighter people, so they will have to abandon their hiring practices of advertising on pizza boxes and gasoline pumps. Follow the Israeli model!"
Chris Calabrese, legislative counsel, American Civil Liberties Union: "We need to focus more on explosives, less on looking for items like knives and box cutters that can't really cause much harm. [The TSA] already has bomb-

swabbing machines on hand, which can detect bomb-making material on hands and clothes. These are much less invasive than the scanners and pat downs, and actually address what is really the main threat against airlines.More broadly, we need to have a real discussion about comparing the benefits and costs of our current system. Unfortunately, it's a little late now, with so much money spent and so many body scanners deployed, but we're not even sure how effective these scanners are at detecting bomb-making material. The Government Accountability Office issued a report saying the machines hadn't been adequately field tested, and questioned if the machines would have stopped the Christmas Day bomb attack. Basically, [airline safety] is a long-term issue, and it requires a process that focuses on true security threats while taking civil liberties into account."

Jack Webb on How to Deal With the TSA

Terrorism in the Sky,Terrorists 'could use exploding breast implants to blow up jet'

The recent acquittal of Ahmed Ghailani, a Gitmo detainee of all but 1 charge in N.Y. should serve notice that the Obama administration war on terrorism is in shambles and has been since day one. Janet napolitano and John Pistole the directors of Homeland Security, and the entire TSA department is inept and don't know what they are doing. The groping of male passengers and under the dress feeling of women passengers, and the rub down of children should be a vivid indication that the TSA is reaching for straws, and is groping in the dark. The only way to seriously slow terrorism, not stop it, but slow it down is to profile. Juan Williams who was recently fired from NPR after more than 10 years for saying that he get nervous and had fears when he was on a flight with Muslim women who were dressed in full Muslim garbs, should not be dismissed as someone who is a racist or have prejudices toward a certain group of people. Just take the recent turn of events with the emerging police state and the willful violations of the flying American public constitutional rights. According to The FOURTH AMENDMENT...SEARCH AND SEIZURE: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized" The real rub is that the TSA is entertaining the idea to cave in to the Muslims demand that Muslim women who are flying in full Muslim traditional dress should not go through the full body scanner, or get the pat down that everyone else is subjected to, should put the entire flying public on notice that something is very seriously wrong. Recent reports is that Obama Gives a Pass. The long story, short, TSA Won’t Touch Muslims’ Junk. Reports states that Muslim women will not have to face such worries. has reported that Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which is frequently tied to domestic terror plots — has been guaranteed that TSA officials will only pat down Muslim women in the head and neck area. CAIR said Muslims Women who object to full-body scans for religious reasons should know their rights if they are required to undergo a pat-down, including asking for the procedure to be done in a private place. In addition, CAIR offered a “special recommendation” for Muslim women who wear a hijab, telling them they should tell the TSA officer that they may be searched only around the head and neck. Now the flying public never will know what else is underneath the traditional dress of Muslim women and what they may have on them, or implanted in their bodies until the aircraft goes up in smoke, then it will be way too late. The question that come to mind for concern is about breast implants or breast prosthetics. What about breast implants? Will the common everyday Plain Jane, the average everyday woman who may have had breast reconstructive surgery because of medical reasons have to take their prosthetics off. More importantly,will the woman who has had breast implants for cosmetic reasons have to zip off their new breasts because explosive can not be detected by fondling them,or because they can not removed to be inspected for explosives,will they be allowed to board a flight. Now, this should validate the fears of Juan Williams, and should be on the mind of the flying public because explosive can be put into breast implants. The reason being is, Muslim women are just as dangerous and radical as Muslim men, and that the agenda of the terrorists is to kill as many Westerners as possible, even if they have to die with them in the process.The next big question is,what torment would a person have at the TSA check point if they have a plate in their head, metal hip or knee replacements, or an artificial limb? There are two very informative news articles about this matter that everyone who fly should read, and a video that you should watch and I have attached them here, read them, watch the video and govern your self accordingly. Forewarned is forearmed: Terrorists 'could use exploding breast implants to blow up jet' By Heidi Blake 8:36AM GMT 24 Mar 2010 Radical Islamist plastic surgeons could be carrying out the implant operations in lawless areas of Pakistan, security sources are said to warned. Explosives experts have reportedly said just five ounces of Pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate packed into a breast implant would be enough to blow a “considerable” hole in the side of a jumbo jet. It would be virtually impossible for airport security scanners to detect the explosive if hidden inside a breast, medics have said. Joseph Farah, a terrorism expert, told The Sun: "Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery." Plastic surgeons may also have inserted the chemical into the buttocks of would-be suicide bombers. The discovery was reportedly made after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a London-educated Nigerian, attempted to blow up an airliner bound for Detroit on Christmas day with explosives packed into his underpants. Hours after his attack failed, British intelligence services reportedly picked up “chatter” from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted them to the bizarre new method. One plastic surgeon told The Sun: "Properly inserted the implant would be virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines. "You would need to subject a suspect to a sophisticated X-ray. Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner." Terrorists Could Use Explosives in Breast Implants to Crash Planes, Experts Warn Female homicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered. The shocking new Al Qaeda tactic involves radical doctors inserting the explosives in women's breasts during plastic surgery — making them "virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines." It is believed the doctors have been trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures. MI5 has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male bombers."Women suicide bombers recruited by Al Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery," Terrorist expert Joseph Farah claims.

The discovery of these methods was made after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner in the U.S. on Christmas Day. He had stuffed explosives inside his underpants. Hours after he had failed, Britain's intelligence services began to pick up "chatter" emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants. A hand-picked team investigated the threat which was described as "one that can circumvent our defense." Top surgeons have confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

You Might Want To Print This, Cut It Out And Put it On Your Fridge So You Won't Forget!

Retribution is less than 1 year away!
Take a look at this and just remember elections in November 2010.
1. U..S.. House &Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.

2. They voted to NOT give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.

3. Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years

4. You will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr.

5. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.

6. Over these same 2-years each Congress person will get $10,000

7. Do you feel SCREWED?

8. Will they have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., decrease?

9. NO WAY.

Congress received a raise and has better health and retirement benefits than you or I.
Why should they care about you?
You never did anything about it in the past.
You obviously are too stupid or don't care.
Do you really think that Nancy , Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barny, et al, care about you?
Send the message to these individuals --- "YOU'RE FIRED!"
In 2010 you will have a chance to get rid of the sitting Congress: up to 1/3 of the Senate and 100% of the House!
Make sure you're still mad in November 2010 and remind their replacements not to screw-up.
It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse. Maybe it's time for Amendment 28 to the Constitution..
28th Amendment will be as follows:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."
Let's get this passed around, folks - these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves! It's time for retribution. Let's take back America ..

Profling or Having The Right To Be In The Good Ole U.S. Of A?

Now, I think this will amplify the need to protect the border, and goes to the heart of the matter of the immigration mess with the Arizona Sb1070 immigration bill. Two Minnesota Women were Among 14 Charged In Terror Probe, Amina Farah Ali had become the go-to person for Somalis in the southern Michigan city of Rochester wanting to donate items to refugees displaced by violence in their homeland. But she and another woman, Hawo Mohamed Hassan, were actually using the pretense of charity to send money to a violent terrorist group in the African country, prosecutors allege. They also claim the women made direct pleas in teleconference calls for others "to support violent jihad in Somalia." The two women, both U.S. citizens living in Rochester, are among 14 people named in indictments unsealed Thursday in Minneapolis, San Diego, and Mobile, Ala. - accused of being part of what the government called "a deadly pipeline" that routed money and fighters from the U.S. to al-Shabab. The Somali insurgent faction embraces a radical form of Islam similar to the harsh, conservative brand practiced by Afghanistan's former Taliban regime. Both women said they are innocent. "We are not terrorists," Ali said after she and Hassan made their first appearances Thursday in U.S. District Court in St. Paul. The indicted also include Omar Hammami, an Alabama man now known as Abu Mansour al-Amriki, or "the American" - who has become one of al-Shabab's most high-profile members and appeared in a jihadist video in May 2009. The group's fighters, numbering several thousand strong, are battling Somalia's weakened government and have been branded a terrorist group with ties to al-Qaida by the U.S. and other Western countries. Attorney General Eric Holder said the indictments reflect a disturbing trend of recruitment efforts targeting U.S. residents to become terrorists. He credited Muslim community leaders in the United States for helping combat radicalization. Of the 14 people named in indictments Thursday, at least half are U.S. citizens and 12 of them are out of the country, including 10 men from Minnesota who allegedly left to join al-Shabab. Seven of those 10 Minnesota men named had been charged in earlier indictments or criminal complaints. Ali, 33, and Hassan, 63, are the only two people indicted Thursday who remain in the U.S. They are both charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Ali faces multiple counts of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and Hassan faces three counts of lying to the FBI. Abdifatah Abdinur, a Somali community leader in Rochester, said many knew Ali as a religious speaker who preached to women, and as a person who would collect clothes for refugees, telling many people to drop off donations at her garage. "I know a lot of people might send money or goods, without knowing the consequences of what they were doing," said Abdinur said. "If you have clothes, you give them to her," said Abdinur. "If you have shoes, give them to her." Abdinur said. "I was surprised, as almost everybody was (to learn) that she was sending clothes to al-Shabab." The women and others allegedly went door to door in Minneapolis; Rochester, Minn., and elsewhere in the U.S. and Canada to raise funds for al-Shabab's operations in Somalia.The indictment says they claimed the money would go to the poor and needy and used phony names for recipients to conceal that it was going to al-Shabab. They also allegedly made direct appeals to people in teleconferences. During one teleconference, the indictment says, Ali told others "to forget about the other charities" and focus on "the jihad." The indictment says Ali and others sent the funds through various hawalas, money transfer businesses that are a common source of financial transactions in the Islamic world. Ali is accused of sending $8,608 to al-Shabab on 12 occasions from September 2008 through July 2009. The fundraising operation in Minnesota reached into Ohio, where a Columbus resident helped collect donations for al-Shabab, according to the indictment. The document also says that after the FBI searched Ali's home in 2009, she contacted an al-Shabab leader in southern Somalia and said: "I was questioned by the enemy here. ... They took all my stuff and are investigating it ... Do not accept calls from anyone." Prosecutors didn't seek detention for Ali or Hassan, but a federal magistrate set several conditions for their release, including barring travel outside Minnesota without permission. When asked whether she understood why she was in court, Ali said through an interpreter: "I do not know - however, I think maybe because of my faith."
Ali, who works in home health care and has lived in Rochester for 11 years, also said: "Allah is my attorney." Hassan said she was self-employed, running a day care. Minneapolis has been the hub of the federal investigation into al-Shabab recruitment over the last two years, after a U.S. citizen from Minneapolis carried out a suicide bombing in Somalia in October 2008. Roughly 20 young men - all but one of Somali descent - have left Minnesota for that country since late 2007.
In Mobile, Ala., on Thursday prosecutors unsealed a September 2009 indictment against Hammami. Holder said Hammami has appeared in several propaganda videos for al-Shabab and "has assumed an operational role in that organization." Hammami, 26, grew up in the middle-class town of Daphne, Ala., and attended the University of South Alabama in Mobile, where he was president of the Muslim Student Association nine years ago. School officials said they have been unaware of his whereabouts since he left the university in 2002. Hammami's father, Shafik, is an engineer with the state highway department who also has served as president of the Islamic Society of Mobile. Shafik Hammami confirmed his relationship to Omar Hammami in e-mail exchanges with The Associated Press earlier this year but declined further comment.
In San Diego, prosecutors unsealed an indictment charging Jehad Serwan Mostafa, 28, with conspiring to provide material support to al-Shabab. Mostafa is believed to be in Somalia.

The SB1070 bamboozled shuffle

I tried not to wade into the great debate on immigration, but after seeing Lady Gaga rant and protest on the evening news the other day, I can not hold my peace. First and foremost, most Americans don't have a clue about Arizona's immigration law SB1070 and what immigrations means to Americans and the nation. What those in the streets protesting are doing, is showing that they have no civic pride and allegiance to America. They have been bought out and sold out by the current administration, hood winkled and bamboozled if you will. The Federal Government turned the issue into a black and brown issue, walking while Mexican and driving while black is a slight of hands trick that made Harry Houdini and David Copperfield green with envy, and amplifies P.T Barnum statement "There is a sucker born every minute", and the proof is in the streets, just watch the evening news. What is lacking in the grand scheme of things is the remembrance of 9-11 and how it occurred and how can the next one be stopped. I will ask that people read, and think about the original intent of the 14Th amendment to the Constitution. Then have a good read of the immigrations laws of other countries. There are three Americans citizens in jail in Iran. They were on a walk or hike in Iraq and supposedly drifted across the border into Iran, now they have been sitting in an Iranian jail for a year. The real, here in America if you are driving and run a stop sign, a red light of just speeding, it does not matter if you are black, white, pink, plaid, or polka dotted, the first thing the police ask when they pull you over is for your diver license, proof of insurance, and vehicle registration, if you don't have any of the requested documents, then you have problems, if you don't speak English, then that is another problem. If you are traveling outside the U.S.A and do not have a valid passport, you will have problems more ways than six. So the question to be answered, are these incidents racial profiling? Now, lets look at Mexico's immigration law, yes the country that have America in such unrest and distress.
the General Law on Population enacted in Mexico in April 2000, mandates that federal, local and municipal police cooperate with federal immigration authorities in that country in the arrests of all illegal immigrants. Now, lets have a look see at some Illegal Immigration Laws.
Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.
The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," violate Mexican law, are not "physically or mentally healthy" or lack the "necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents.
Lets say this again with clarity:– The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?
– If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.
– Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in Mexico. (see, for example, President Obama’s illegal alien aunt — a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim).
– Law enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.
– Ready to show your papers? Mexico’s National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens’ identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.
While we fret over asking people for photo ID before voting, Mexican laws stipulate that. Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:
…A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity.
Mind you, this is applicable to every person in Mexico, not just aliens of legal or unlawful status. Civil rights? Right to privacy? Not in Mexico.
And then there’s the Mexican undiplomatic diplomats:
Mexican officials here and abroad are involved in a massive and almost daily interference in American sovereignty. The dozens of illegals milling in the consulate’s courtyard as Velázquez-Suárez speaks, and the millions more radiating outward from Los Angeles across the country, are not a naturally occurring phenomenon, like the tides. They are there thanks in part to Mexico’s efforts to get them into the U.S. in violation of American law, and to normalize their status once here in violation of the popular will. Mexican consulates are engineering a backdoor amnesty for their illegal migrants and trying to discredit American immigration enforcement—activities clearly beyond diplomatic bounds.
LAW OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA ON ENTRY AND EXIT OF ALIENS(Adopted by the Standing Committee of the Sixth National People's Congress at its Thirteenth Session on 22 November 1985.)
General Provisions
Article 1 The present law is enacted for the purpose of safeguarding the sovereignty and maintaining the security and public order of the People's Republic of China and facilitating international exchanges.
The present Law shall apply to aliens entering, leaving or passing through the territory of the People's Republic of China and to aliens residing or traveling in China.
Article 2 Permission must be obtained from the competent authorities of the Chinese Government by aliens for their entry, transit and residence in China.
Article 3 For entry, exit and transit, aliens shall pass through the ports open to aliens or other designated ports and shall be subject to inspection at border check-posts.
For entry, exit and transit, aliens' means of transport shall pass through the ports open to aliens or other designated ports and shall be subject to inspection and supervision at border check-posts.
Article 4 The Chinese Government protects the legitimate rights and interests of aliens within Chinese territory.
The personal freedom of aliens shall be inviolable. Aliens shall not be liable to arrest unless a warrant or decision is made by a people's procuratorate or a decision is made by a people's court and such a warrant or decision is executed by a public security organ or state security organ.
Article 5 Aliens in China shall abide by Chinese law and shall not endanger the national security of China, harm its public interests or disturb its public order.
Saudi Arabia
ENTRY / EXIT REQUIREMENTS: A passport valid for at least six months and a visa are required for entry. Visas are issued for business and work, to visit close relatives, and for transit and religious visits by Muslims. Visas for tourism are issued only for approved tour groups following organized itineraries. Airport and seaport visas are not available. All visas require a sponsor, can take several months to process, and must be obtained prior to arrival. Effective May 2008, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs agreed to issue 5-year multiple-entry visas to American visitors and students. All Saudi Embassies have the authority to issue the 5-year visas, but only the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C. appears to be doing so at this time. In the past, American citizens have reported being refused a Saudi visa because their passports reflected travel to Israel or indicated that they were born in Israel, although this has not happened recently. Women visitors and residents are required to be met by their sponsor upon arrival. Women who are traveling alone and are not met by sponsors have experienced delays before being allowed to enter the country or to continue on other flights.
Women considering relocating to Saudi Arabia should be keenly aware that women and children residing in Saudi Arabia as members of a Saudi household (including adult American-citizen women married to Saudi men, adult American-citizen women who are the unmarried daughters of Saudi fathers, and American-citizen boys under the age of 21 who are the sons of Saudi fathers) require the permission of the Saudi male head of their household to leave the country. Married women require their husband's permission to depart the country, while unmarried women and children require the permission of their father or male guardian. The U.S. Embassy can intercede with the Saudi government to request exit permission for an adult American woman (wife or daughter of a Saudi citizen), but there is no guarantee of success, or even of timely response. Mothers are not able to obtain permission for the departure of minor children without the father's agreement.
Lastly, here in the US the signs at the pro-illegals protests are mostly ignored by the mainstream media, which is too busy looking for Tea Party misdeeds to bother with national security issues such as borders and immigration. Most Americans know our basic laws regarding illegal immigration and that it is not enforced and thus the reason for Arizona immigration law 2010. Simply put, it is illegal to enter the United States without permission. The first time an illegal immigrant is caught in the US it is a misdemeanor civil offense. This is because we want to be able to quickly return illegal aliens to Mexico or Canada, when they are caught at the border without the rigors of a jury trial.
After the first offense, being caught a second time is a felony!
It is also against the law to overstay a visa issued by the US Government and illegal for an employer to knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
Our volunteers have compiled this list of illegal immigration laws for your review.
It is Illegal To Bring Illegal Aliens Into US under current Laws
It is unlawful for any person to bring aliens into the United States. Fine: $3,000 for each alien (Sec. 273. [8 U.S.C. 13230). Now I hope this cleared up somethings about the need for Arizona's immigration law SB1070

Illegals Infiltrating U.S. Military Bases

First and foremost I have to apologize, and say that I am sorry about piling and dumping a lot of information on you that make me appears as if I am wrapped tight around the axle. See, I am retired military and I look at things through the prism of the military lens and ask the question what if, while most view current issues and events through rose colored glasses. See, I haven't forgottten 9-11 because I was assigned military guard duty and sat on the runway at the international airport from 6 in the evening until 6 in the morning for two months watching for the next terrorist. I remember the 3000 or more who died in the second attack on the twin towers, and I remember the Oklahoma bombing, and I know that there are young men and women dying by the bus load in the war against terrorism abroad. There are a untold number of young men and women who are suffering a vast array of injuries fighting terrorism abroad, when the real fight should be here at home. America is in a serious dog fight, but don't realize the breed of dogs it is fighting, because it is led to believe the dog is a toy poodle when in reality it is a pit bull. some of the world's most deadliest and poisonous snakes are the most beautiful and prettiest, thus I say, do not be deceived by the brilliance, and the highroad to hell is paved with good intentions. Right now, today at the present time it is a joke and everyone is elated over the ruse of the Federal Government in its push to stop the Arizona Immigration law in it's effort to stop illegals. Many are saying chalk one up in the win column for the Government, and that U.S District Judge Susan Bolton did the right thing. The real point is, all illegals are not Mexicans or Hispanics, they are just caught up in the hysteria, and Blacks Americans don't realize that the 14Th amendment that is being subverted to give credence to the illegal issue is the constitutional amendment that gave their ancestors, the newly freed slaves citizenship, and spelled out what and who is a citizen. Blacks, Mexicans, and Hispanics are unwittingly pawns on the chess board of the one world agenda or initiative. Let me say this in closing my apology, let your conscience be your guide, because the next attack in America will be bigger that 9-11, because each time there is an attack it is bigger than the last, so if America do not heed the call, it will fall...and this bring me to the case in point and the reason for this apology, Are illegals infiltrating U.S. military bases?
Sheriff Joe hunts aliens working at Army intelligence post
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning that illegal aliens may have gained access to a U.S. Army installation in Arizona that also serves as the nation's largest military intelligence-training center. "I have deep concerns that people who come into our country illegally have managed to gain access onto an active U.S. military installation," Arpaio said in a statement today. "This cause for concern goes well beyond the argument that people are only committing the crime of wanting to work in this country." Arpaio's detectives raided Valley View Building Services in central Phoenix today, searching for 25 people suspected of identity theft and fraud. The company employs 100 people in three states and is contracted to clean newly constructed buildings at Fort Huachuca, an Army post located only 15 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border. At least one of the suspects had worked on the military The deputies took five women into custody today. Four are suspected illegal aliens arrested for identity theft and fraud. One is a U.S. citizen wanted with an outstanding warrant. "When we went in there, one of the ladies was hiding her Mexican I.D. in an enchilada, trying to conceal the identification," Arpaio said. He said authorities are still searching for other illegal aliens who may be working for the company. "We did serve another search warrant on the residence of the owner and, going through the papers, we're going to determine which work sites that the others may be working at," he said.Arpaio told KTVK-3TV, "One thing I want to find out is how many more illegals have been hired [to work at] Fort Huachuca. That's a high intelligence installation. I don't think people should go on that installation to work if they're in this country illegally." Valley View Building Services released a statement on the arrests today. "In May of 2010 a manager for Valley View Building Services was detained on the Fort Huachuca military base for a baseless charge made by a disgruntled employee," explained Joel Votaw, owner of the company. "This charge has since been dropped. During that investigation, it came to light that he was working in the United States illegally, even though he presented a valid AZ drivers license and social security card. He was allowed on base (entering through the main gate and having to present his ID each time) during the entire duration of this 3 month long project." Votaw said his company fired the manager immediately and that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement began a company-wide investigation into Valley View's hiring practices. He said today's raid was for ID theft issues and not due to violation of the employer sanction law. Most of the company's workforce is Hispanic, according to news reports. Votaw said he has always verified identification of its employees through E-Verify, strictly complying with local, state and federal rules. "Today was the first time we had received any notice that there were more problems. We support the detaining of the four people who were identified as using some other identity and we also support the detaining of the one individual that has a misdemeanor warrant out for his arrest," he wrote. "These crimes are serious and need to be dealt with." Votaw continues, "We are dealing with real people and real problems that deserve to be handled respectfully and justly. If we error, let us err on the side of compassion, but let us do what is required of us both morally and constitutionally. Let us protect our country, while also realizing that we were all immigrants at one time." According to various reports, this is hardly the first time illegal aliens have accessed the military installation. Retired Army officer T.J. Woodward lives in the area. In a May commentary posted on American Thinker, he wrote that he spotted an ad in a Fort Huachuca newspaper asking for volunteers to clean up trash and supplies left on the Army post by illegal aliens. "It asked for volunteers to assist in cleaning up 'dumps' on posts where the illegals would drop their supplies used to cross the border and change clothing," Woodward wrote. "They do this in order to blend in and not look like they just spent a day or two crossing the border in the dust and heat of southern Arizona." He added, "The most frightening part of this is that Fort Huachuca is the U.S. Army Intelligence Center, where the Army trains its intelligence soldiers – analysts, interrogators, radio intercept specialists and counterintelligence agents – for operations overseas. If we can't secure the fort we use to train our intelligence soldiers, how can we secure anything else?" In 2007, the Washington Times reported Fort Huachuca changed security measures "after sources warned that possibly 60 Afghan and Iraqi terrorists were to be smuggled into the U.S. through underground tunnels with high-powered weapons to attack the Arizona Army base." An FBI advisory stated, "A portion of the operatives were in the United States, with the remainder not yet in the United States. The Afghanis and Iraqis shaved their beards so as not to appear to be Middle Easterners." According to the report, illegal aliens from the Middle East paid Mexican drug lords $20,000 "or the equivalent in weapons" for smuggling them and their weapons through the tunnels. One source who spoke with DEA intelligence agents said the weapons included two Milan anti-tank missiles, Soviet-made surface-to-air missiles, grenade launchers, long guns and handguns. The Tucson Weekly reported one rancher just west of Fort Huachuca answered his door in 2004 when a female illegal alien asked to use his phone. According to the report, the call was to Libya. It is reported that thousands of illegal aliens apprehended along the 2,000 mile border stretching through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas aren't even from Mexico. Many are citizens of countries that are known sponsors of terrorism, including Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Syria and Iran. Arpaio's crime sweep took place just before a federal judge blocked some of the toughest provisions in Arizona's illegal immigration law, S.B. 1070. Now, please a slight review of the foundation for the Arizina controversal immigration law,S.B.1070, and this is none other than the 14th amendment to the constitution,more importantly theOriginal intent of the 14th Amendment The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which reads in part: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside." Babies born to illegal alien mothers within U.S. borders are called anchor babies because under the 1965 immigration Act, they act as an anchor that pulls the illegal alien mother and eventually a host of other relatives into permanent U.S. residency. (Jackpot babies is another term). The United States did not limit immigration in 1868 when the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified. Thus there were, by definition, no illegal immigrants and the issue of citizenship for children of those here in violation of the law was nonexistent. Granting of automatic citizenship to children of illegal alien mothers is a recent and totally inadvertent and unforeseen result of the amendment and the Reconstructionist period in which it was ratified. Post-Civil War reforms focused on injustices to African Americans. The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of native-born Black Americans, whose rights were being denied as recently-freed slaves. It was written in a manner so as to prevent state governments from ever denying citizenship to blacks born in the United States. But in 1868, the United States had no formal immigration policy, and the authors therefore saw no need to address immigration explicitly in the amendment. In 1866, Senator Jacob Howard clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment by stating: The original intent of the 14Th Amendment was clearly not to facilitate illegal aliens defying U.S. law and obtaining citizenship for their offspring, nor obtaining benefits at taxpayer expense. Current estimates indicate there may be between 300,000 and 700,000 anchor babies born each year in the U.S., thus causing illegal alien mothers to add more to the U.S. population each year than immigration from all sources in an average year before 1965.

Stopping the oil spill with the Bernoulli's Principle

Since President Obama has never talked with the CEO of BP, and BP have been in charge of stopping the oil spill,things have continue to go from bad to worse, and there have been several great ideas from people not connected with the oil industry, and from some in the fuel section of the military to stop the flow of oil from the Gulf Of Mexico.The only major problem with stopping the spill with conventional methods or ideas by these individuals is the lack of knowledge of the rate of flow of the oil, the pressure from the oil well, pressure of water of the Gulf at the site of the well. Now, there is the Batching pig, which is common knowledge in the oil and fuel industry, and some one from Minnesota just came up with the idea of a hydraulic cap to stop the oil flow, and or control the oil flow to the ship above the spill to capture and refine the oil with with a fuel oil spectator, thus keeping the profit of BP growing.The hydraulic cap again is not a new idea, it is a modification and use of the Bernoulli's Principle, which again is not new to those in fuel and hydraulics....What is the Bernoulli's Principle? As a person who worked as a liquid fuel technician in the military, this is a simple definition of the Bernoulli's Principle: In Fluid dynamics , Bernoulli's principle states that for an Inviscid flow of the fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy. Bernoulli's principle is named after the Dutch-Swiss mathematician Daniel Bernoulli who published his principle in his book Hydrodynamica in 1738. Bernoulli's principle can be applied to various types of fluid flow, resulting in what is loosely denoted as Bernoulli's equation. Fluid particles are subject only to pressure and their own weight. If a fluid is flowing horizontally and along a section of a streamline, where the speed increases it can only be because the fluid on that section has moved from a region of higher pressure to a region of lower pressure; and if its speed decreases, it can only be because it has moved from a region of lower pressure to a region of higher pressure. Consequently, within a fluid flowing horizontally, the highest speed occurs where the pressure is lowest, and the lowest speed occurs where the pressure is highest.In most flows of liquids, and of gases at low Mach number, the mass density of a fluid parcel can be considered to be constant, regardless of pressure variations in the flow. For this reason the fluid in such flows can be considered to be incompressible and these flows can be described as incompressible flow. Bernoulli performed his experiments on liquids and his equation in its original form is valid only for incompressible flow. A common form of Bernoulli's equation, valid at any arbitrary point along a streamline where gravity is constant.

A Possible Way to stop the Gulf Oil Spill

As a retired military liquid fuel and maintenance technician I think the young lady, Alia Sabur of Long Island,New York is right on target when she said that she can stop the leak. Sabur proposes surrounding a pipe with deflated automobile tires, inserting it into the leaking riser, and then inflating the wheels to form a seal. She said, "I started thinking of something that goes inside it.
However,The tires might not be able to fully inflate inside the pipe, but the resulting seal would be able to stem the flow of oil and redirect it into a new pipe", she said. Sabur also said a valve in the pipe could be closed to block the oil or open to allow it to flow, presumably to a ship on the surface. Sabur admitted that she's not certain the inflated tires would be enough to hold the new pipe in place. As a former fuel technician I think that a far better idea would be the use of a batching pig, or a series of batching pigs.The first thing to do is cut the oil pipe as close to the sea bed as possible, then using the size of the oil well pipe inside diameter, find, modify, or design a batching pig about one quarter of an inch smaller than the size of the pipe so that it will just fit into the oil pipe, and with the known pressure of the oil well, use opposing force to neutralize or equalize the pressure from the well, push a batching pig down into the pipe with as much force as possible, with pressure greater than the pressure coming from the oil well. Once the pig is into the pipe some distant, fill it with hydraulic concrete, then put a slab of concrete over the pipe, that will withstand the pressure of the well. This is the same principle as the young lady said, except instead of using a tire and inflating it, use a batching pig. I know this worked in the military fuel sections, as well as over land fuel commercial transfer systems. It is a known given that with a series of batching pigs different grades and type of fuel and oil can be sent from Texas to Manhattan in New York city with no leaks or other problems.The basic principle is nothing new to those in the oil industry and the fuel section in the military...

As a footnote, here is a little information about batching pigs:
The UM series are well-built, steel bodied pigs designed for a variety of pipeline applications. General uses include batching, condensation removal, purging or light cleaning. These batching pigs will also traverse pipeline anomalies of up to 25% without damage to the inline auxiliary equipment.

I Don't Understand

Let me get this straight......they've passed a health
care plan written by a committee whose chairman says
he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't
read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a
president that also hasn't read it and who smokes, with
funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay
his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is
obese, and financed by a country that's broke.

What the hell could possibly go wrong?

So Depressed

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land."

Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about health care plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc. that I called Lifeline. Got a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.

They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.
