Re: Don't blame Intelligence or Security Agencies.....

The intelligence agencies in the United States are the best in the world.

Mossad would disagree with you. 
Ever wondered why no one hijacks El Al flights?

I always thought it was due to two factors:

1) Proper security design at the airports that make all the obvious single-person
low-tech attacks fairly unlikely to work, forcing the use of high-tech or
conspiracy solutions.

2) The reluctance of anybody to be the on-the-ground part of a conspiracy or
the seller of a high-tech solution, when you *know* that your continued life
expectancy is very short unless you plan to spend the rest of your life hiding
under a bush in one of the more inhospitable jungles of New Guinea.  

Not to mention the fact that ElAl has multiple armed air marshalls on
*every* flight.

Right, and they are not afraid to use deadly force immediately.
