U.S. President Barak Obama has branded him a corporate welfare bum --- town gossips claim he is a trillionaire --- the Old Timer lives in subsidized housing and spends his days dumpster diving

19-Aug-06 -

Here is how Transport Canada reacted last week to media publicity of the plot to mix explosives on board and blow up 10 big passenger jets over the North Atlantic:

Notice to air travelers:
The Government of Canada has instituted new security measures in airports to protect Canadians and combat terrorism. In light of these new measures the government wishes to remind all air travellers that liquids, gels or aerosols are not permitted to be carried on board an aircraft, including in carry-on baggage.

But

... it all depends on whose ox is being gored ...
Ancient Metaphor

Duty free shops rake in most of their profits at federal air ports; are heavily dependant on the goodwill of the federal government, have built up a powerful lobby; bribe politicians (legally by way of, for example, campaign contributions) lavishly. Today Transport Canada amended its notice - exempted duty free perfumes and liquors bought by travelers not going to the U.S. or Britain. It will be easy, comfortable, convenient, said Transport Canada's official spin-doctor:

... the duty-free products could be given to you just prior to you boarding the aircraft ...

Now Wahabbi terror gangs need only stop in at a duty free shop before boarding a target aircraft. Each terrorist will buy a glass bottle of Château Haut-Brion wine. Friends of the federal government will hand each bottle over to a Whabbi as he enters the aircraft. Once aboard and safely aloft, each Whabbi will tie a red kamikaze scarf around his head, break his bottle on his chair arm - broken bottles are better weapons than the Exacto knives gangs of grandstanding Saudi-based Whabbis used on September 11, 2001 .

... some countermeasures provide the feeling of security instead of the reality ...
Bruce Schnieier, one of the World's foremost security experts in Beyond Fear
