“Kill Me First” dead

AIR MARSHALS WIN ONE

The dress code that pretty much outed any undercover Federal Air Marshal at first glance has been loosened. I mentioned it a couple of times. There has been a lot of debate over the past few months about exactly what the policy meant, but the fact that they’ve announced a change to a policy that they used to deny even existed tells me something.

I think Michelle Malkin deserves a big pat on the back for her efforts at getting awareness of this issue out there. Go see her post for a ton of links.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, another proposed rules change is just plain stupid. There’s a reason the homeland is insecure: Americans’ intolerance for inconvenience.

  1. Don’t forget what Franklin (supposedly) said: They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor security. How do you find that meshes with this war? Personally I think some security measures are very sensible and others exist only to make people feel secure. I find the latter are typically the ones which impact on liberties the most – although not always.
